First-quarter 2018 sales

First-quarter 2018 sales: +2.6% at constant exchange rates / Carrefour 2022: Solid transformation momentum initiated


First-quarter 2018 sales of €20,776m, up +2.6% at constant exchange rates and up 0.4% on a like-for-like basis, penalized by:

  • Less favorable markets overall in Europe, notably due to adverse weather conditions impacting more specifically non-food and hypermarkets;
  • Continued sharp food deflation in Brazil;
  • Persistently strong competitive pressure in the Group’s main markets.

Solid execution dynamic of the « Carrefour 2022 » plan in the first quarter:

  • Implementation of the operational transformation plan: Launch of the process to transform the organizations in France, Belgium and Argentina; positive momentum in gains on direct and indirect purchasing; advances in discussions on the removal of 273 ex-DIA stores from the Group’s scope;
  • Roll-out of omnichannel offer: Rapid extension of home delivery in France; opening of new Drives; launch of the Carrefour Pay payment solution; rapid advances in the plan to create a single carrefour.fr website; acquisition of a majority stake in start-up Quitoque, a leader of meal-kit home deliveries in France;
  • First achievements in the food transition for all: Launch of the first food blockchain in the poultry product line to ensure traceability; extension of the range of products containing no antibiotics to various products in Belgium, Poland and recently in Spain; signature of a partnership with the WWF to accelerate the conversion and the development of organic products in France.
