Retail grocery market

In H1 2017, the retail grocery market in Poland saw positive trends visible both in 2016 and in H1 2017.

The good market situation, rising disposable income and returning inflation support further improvement of consumer sentiment, thereby contributing to the overall retail grocery market and proximity segment.

The rising disposable income translates into more frequent and increased shopping among Poles. The growth rate of consumer prices visible since the end of 2016 has also contributed to higher top line revenues measured by like for like sales.

According to a Roland Berger report (from November 2016), an increase in total sales in the retail grocery market is expected in Poland at the average annual pace of 3.7% up to 2020.

The proximity segment, in turn, may be the fastest growing segment of the retail food trade in Poland measured using the average annual growth rate in the number of stores up to 2020.

H1 was a good period both for the overall market in retail food trade and for Dino. We recorded very good results in this period. We dynamically increase the sales volume and at the same time record satisfactory and gradually increasing profitability levels. We open new stores, regularly increasing the volume of our business. We reach high LfL sales levels in the existing chain. In H1 LfL sales increased 14.7% yoy, and in Q2 only this increase reached 16.5%. To summarize, we are satisfied with the H1 performance – says Szymon Piduch – President of the Management Board of Dino Polska S.A.

Good consumer moods associated with growing incomes and favorable economic situation support further dynamic growth of proximity supermarkets such as Dino. The consumer price growth rate additionally supports the market where we operate. The positive market trends observed in H1 2017 portend well for the upcoming months of 2017. In H1 we increased our land bank by nearly 28% yoy and we have secured 429 locations for further development. In H2 we want to significantly speed up the opening of new Dino stores – adds Szymon Piduch.
