UK supermarket company Tesco is expected to achieve sales in Poland of €1bn (US$1.09bn) this year, confirming its position as the number two retailer in the market, behind German operator Metro, according to food industry research provider IGD. IGD's new European Grocery Retailing report forecasts that Tesco will leap four places to number two, overtaking Carrefour, Auchan, Casino and Jerónimo Martins, fuelled by its market leadership in the hypermarket sector and the full consolidation of the sales from its 2002 acquisition of HIT.
