What is the difference between the new METRO and the old one?

Interview with Olaf Koch

The new METRO is much more clearly aligned. We are now a retail company which has a strong focus on food and is firmly established in wholesale at an international level. As a wholesaler, we want to be the partner of choice for the many small and medium-sized companies out there. Our aim with this is to make our customers even more successful.
