Forbes named the 10 largest grocery retailers in the world.
Forbes magazine has published an updated ranking of the 2000 largest public companies in the world. 8 out of 10 top lines of the rating were occupied by American and Chinese banks. The US has traditionally accounted for more than 400 companies in the ranking, including 35 in the top 100. For comparison, there were 18 Chinese companies in the top 100, 8 Japanese companies, and only 4 Russian ones.
The list of the largest grocery retailers in the Forbes 2000 ranking traditionally turned out to be divided into two categories - "food retail" and "discount stores". Market Leadership saved Walmart – with a turnover of 514 billion dollars, the company is located on the 29th line of the list, several times ahead of all competitors in terms of net profit, capitalization and asset value.
The American giants took the second and third positions in the ranking. Costco Wholesale (173rd place) and target (223rd). The best European retailer Tesco took 243rd place. Asian market leader Seven & I Holdings is ranked 278th.
The top 10 largest food sellers in the world market also included the American Kroger, the Dutch Royal Ahold Delhaize with the Food Lion, Hannaford and Stop & Shop brands, and the Canadian Couche Tard (Circle K, Mac's, Kangaroo). The rating was closed at once by two Australian companies - Woolworths, which also operates stores in India and New Zealand, as well as multi-format retailer Westfarmers.
Russian food market leaders are in the second half of the ranking: X5 Retail Group ranked 1288th, and Magnit - 1370th.
