Selling to Carrefour & Building an Effective Drive Strategy
22/04/2015, Paris, France
Three years into George Plassat's tenure, Carrefour seems to have turned a corner with sustained recovery. But the road ahead for Plassat will be bumpy as rival grocery chains join forces and put more pressure on Carrefour than ever before.
During a two day global workshop, Kantar Worldpanel and Kantar Retail experts will analyse the sustainability of Plassat’s strategy and outline clear recommendations for grocery manufacturers who wish to succeed with this revived (or not?) retailer.
We will also reveal which retailers are implementing Drive in the right manner (and which aren’t), review the key operational and financial aspects of the Drive model, evaluate growth strategies across multiple French grocers, and examine whether the future is likely to see Drive give way to more profitable fulfilment models such as Click & Collect. Suppliers can expect to come away with clear guidance on where to invest and how to win with this format.
