Carrefour Belgium has announced that it has entered into an agreement with the Provera Belux central buying office to jointly purchase products for Belgium and Luxembourg.
The move makes Carrefour Belgium the second largest central buying office in Belgium.
Presently, this partnership will involve around 140 main suppliers, operating in fast-moving consumer goods and general goods sectors.
Starting 1 January 2019, Carrefour Belgium's purchasing managers will begin negotiations with these suppliers for buying products for the alliance.
The brands involved in the alliance will remain independent, and retain their own sales dynamics.
Members of Provera Belux include Cora, Louis Delhaize, Match, Smatch, and Delitraiteur.
