Ahold Delhaize Unveils New Logo As Deal Is Completed
Ahold Delhaize, which was granted competition approval at the weekend, has unveiled its new logo, which encompasses both the 'crown' emblem used historically by Ahold and the 'lion' insignia formerly part of Delhaize's logo.

Our strong e-commerce businesses and 22 great, local brands each share a passion for delivering great food, value, and innovation for customers, and for making a difference in their local communities."
