Shoprite opens first of its own distribution centres in Nigeria

| Store Openings

The Shoprite Group recently opened a new world-class distribution centre (DC) in Lagos, Nigeria.

The 4 700m² facility is the first property owned entirely by the retail group in Nigeria. Most of the space - some 2 560m² - will be occupied by Freshmark, Shoprite’s fruit and vegetable procurement, buying and distribution arm. An additional 1180 m² will be used to house dry goods.
.
It has taken 12 months to renovate and retrofit the existing property into a specialist facility that complies with the Group’s high standards, including a banana ripening room.

Substantial and ongoing investment in its supply chain is the reason why the Shoprite Group enjoys unmatched levels of competitiveness and consistently delivers on its promise of everyday low prices.

The greatest benefit of the Lagos DC is that it allows small farmers and producers to deliver directly to Shoprite for ease of distribution, and allows the retailer to further add value through re-packaging.
