Ahold Delhaize CEO Says Retailer ‘Ready’ For Amazon/Whole Foods Challenge

Ahold Delhaize chief executive Dick Boer has said that the retailer is up for the challenge, following Amazon’s takeover of Whole Foods in the US, suggesting that there are some aspects of Ahold Delhaize’s business of which the online giant may be jealous.

In an interview with NRC Handelsblad, Boer described Amazon’s Whole Foods takeover as a “logical step”, adding that while there are “many things [Amazon] has no problem with, home delivery with fresh products obviously costs them more effort, and is also more difficult”.

He further suggested, “Those strawberries that you get delivered to your home should still be good for a week.”
