With the concept of certified eco food shops, the Carrefour chain has been present in France, Belgium and Spain. Poland is the fourth country to which this concept has been introduced. On 15 November 2019, at Marszalkowska Street in Warsaw, the first Carrefour BIO store in Poland was opened.

The shop offers 250 types of fresh products (vegetables, fruits, meat, fish), as well as 2,200 packaged products. The assortment of the Carrefour BIO store also includes 250 products of the Carrefour BIO private label. Apart from over 150 m2 of retail space, there is a coffee corner on nearly 30 m2. The non-food products offered by the store include, among others, natural detergents and cosmetics.

Certified organic food – a small but promising market in Poland

According to PMR data, the organic food market in Poland was worth PLN 1.1bn in 2019. Certified bio food accounted for less than 1% of the total value of the Polish food market, but the growth rate of this small segment is three times higher than that of the entire market.
