Auchan Portugal Introduces Collection Points For Small Producers
Auchan Retail Portugal has announced that it has introduced collection points for small local producers in 25 stores across Portugal.
The 'PickUp Local' collection points will offer a dedicated space for food and non-food products purchased directly by customers from local producers, small traders and artisans in Auchan stores.
The retailer will ensure that the products reach customers in a convenient and safe manner without any additional costs.
The 'PickUp Local' service will be available free of charge during the COVID pandemic period, with the collection points operating between 11:00 hours and 20:00 hours.
Auchan Retail Portugal has partnered with more than 100 small producers located within a 50 kilometre radius around its stores to offer quality, healthy products with local traceability.
Around 90% of Auchan's purchases are from Portuguese suppliers. In 2019, Auchan bought more than 6,000 tonnes of products from local suppliers, and between January and June 2020, that figure stood at 3,690 tonnes.
