Top 5 Supermarket Retail Chains In Norway

Statistics Norway data recently showed that Norway's GDP is more than double the EU average.

When differences in prices between countries are taken into account, in 2022 Norway had Europe's third highest value creation per inhabitant.

Norway's consumer price inflation rate accelerated to 4.8% in November 2023, up from 4.0% in the previous month, and slightly below the market consensus of 4.9%. Prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages rose at a faster rate of 9.1% compared to 8.5%.

Meanwhile, the CPI adjusted for tax changes and excluding energy products rose by 5.8%, easing from 6.0% in the previous month, according to Trading Economics.

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