INDIA: Carrefour to open first store in July
Carrefour's first Indian outlet will open first store in the country's capital, Delhi, by the end of next month, the French retail giant has confirmed.
A company spokesperson told just-food that the 55,000 square feet shop would be located at the Metro Mall complex in the Seelampur area of east Delhi and would offer 30,000 products.
Under current Indian government regulations it can operate only as a wholesaler. “We are going full steam to register the clients, who would be small shop owners and hotels,” the spokesperson said. “We are approaching them all over the city because the penetration has to be very wide.”
Meanwhile, Carrefour has also started corporate social responsibility activities in India.
“In Palla village, north Delhi, we are teaching farmers the techniques of how to make more yield out of their farms, as they could be our potential suppliers in the future,” the spokesperson said.
