Top 5 Supermarket Retail Chains In Luxembourg

In December, the annual inflation rate in Luxembourg was down from 3.2% to 3.0%, according to STATEC (National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg).

In November 2023, the national consumer price index showed a monthly fall of 0.3%. STATEC noted that this change can be explained by the sharp fall in petroleum product prices, combined with lower travel costs.

Meanwhile, a seaparate report from STATEC has found that the recent surge in energy prices and the surge in food prices have forced households to make choices regarding their consumption. Energy production in Luxembourg is still highly reliant on carbon-based fuels, recent data showed.

Consequently, certain expenses still remain at a higher level today than in 2019, while others have not returned to their pre-COVID value.

Here's an overview of the top five supermarket retail chains in Luxembourg, according to their most recently-available full-year turnover. All data is supplied by Retail-Index (
