Total consumer turnover increased 7.7% on an annual basis, to €18.2 billion, while its market share stood at 14.8%, confirming its position as the second largest player in the modern distribution segment.

The positive trend continued in the first five months of 2023, with turnover growth of 13.7%. Total turnover for 2023 is projected to come in at €19.3 billion.

In 2022, Selex's private-label brands recorded double-digit growth (+18.5%), with peaks in the specialist and First Price lines. The group's range of branded products now consists of more than 7,500 SKUs.

Strategic Alliances

Gruppo Selex said that it will focus on strengthening its partnerships with the ESD Italia and the EMD purchasing alliances during the current year.


In the cash-and-carry channel, the group continued to benefit from the increase in away-from-home consumption (+22.1%) and the e-commerce segment (+17.9%).

As of 31 May 2023, Gruppo Selex, which consists of 18 associated companies, had 3,266 outlets of different formats in all regions of Italy.

The group's best-known brands are Famila, A&O and C+C, which are flanked by regional brands that are often leaders in the area.
