More information regarding Dino Polska S.A.
Dino is a leading player in Poland’s growing proximity supermarket segment offering great prospects. Dino was the fastest growing proximity supermarket network in Poland in 2010-2015 (in terms of the compound annual growth rate in the number of stores and sales revenues) and it was the second largest network in the proximity segment in 2015 in terms of sales revenues according to the Roland Berger report published in November 2016).
Dino’s network consists of 718 stores (data as at 30 September 2017) primarily located in western Poland with an average selling area of roughly 400 square meters. Most Dino stores are situated in convenient locations in smaller towns and communities, medium-sized cities and in the surrounding areas of large cities.
The Dino Group’s business model combines the advantages of the proximity format with the ability to open new stores quickly and an attractive product range comprising primarily branded and fresh products at competitive prices.
Dino stores offer their customers approx. 5,000 stock keeping units (SKUs), mostly well-known branded products and fresh products. The Dino Group offers its key products at prices similar to the largest grocery retail networks in Poland. One of the most important aspects differentiating the Dino Group from discount networks is that every store has a meat counter with counter staff. High quality meats, cold cuts and canned meats are primarily supplied by Agro-Rydzyna, a meat processing plant forming part of the Dino Group.
The Dino Group’s logistics network consists of three distribution centers located in Krotoszyn, Jastrowie and Piotrków Trybunalski. Its geographic range makes it possible to deliver fresh products to all of the stores in Dino’s network every day of the week.
The Company owns most of the land and properties on which Dino stores are located. Combined with a well-functioning business model, this allowed the Dino network to grow quickly in recent years, ramping up the number of stores from 111 at the end of 2010 to 718 at the end of September 2017.
The company has been listed on WSE’s main floor since April 2017. The Dino Group employed 11,420 people at the end of June 2017.
