Tracking the big beasts of African retail

While traditional retailers continue to dominate, modern formats like supermarkets and hypermarkets are eroding their market share in many urban centres across the continent. It is with this in mind that Sagaci Research is launching a series of reports on the main players in African grocery retail.
These SagaRetail reports provide a detailed overview of the operations of Africa’s leading grocery retailers, covering their sales, banners, store formats, geographic coverage, key markets, corporate structure, management teams, growth strategies, market positioning, and sourcing, pricing, private label and merchandising strategies. An assessment of each player’s strengths and weakness and an analysis of their future prospects is also included.  
The first three reports cover Shoprite, Massmart and Choppies, with nine more to follow, including Auchan, Carrefour, Casino, Navias, Pick n Pay, Sonae, SPAR and Tuskys.
