Carrefour Acquires Potager City

Carrefour Group announced its acquisition of start-up Potager City, the leading distributor of online subscription-based boxes of extra-fresh and seasonal fruit & vegetables sourced via short distribution channels. The Lyon-based start-up employs 110 people and delivers to 350 towns in France via seven logistics centres and a network of more than 3300 pick-up points. This way, it is able to operate as closely as possible to consumers and the partner producers who supply it. Carrefour Group’s acquisition of Potager City will help it speed up its growth and ensure that as many people as possible are able to eat more healthily.
