According to the data, which covers the period from 9 July to 5 August, Intermarché registered the fastest growth amongst the big players, gaining 0.3 percentage points to sit on 14.8% market share.

This was due to improvements in Intermarché's price positioning and range, according to Kantar Worldpanel.

Good Performance

Rival Système U also had a strong period, gaining 0.2 percentage points, with the retailer now holding 11.1% market share, thanks to the recruitment of new shoppers and an increase in the frequency of purchase.

Carrefour, which holds 20.3% market share, posted marginal growth of 0.1%, largely due to its online and proximity formats, particularly Carrefour Market, which accounts for 7.3% of the market.

Géant, Casino Supermarkets and Franprix all gained 0.1 percentage point in the period. As in the last period, Delhaize and Aldi both saw their growth remain flat.
