Auchan Retail International
Boasting €50bn in revenue for 2018 and a workforce of approximately 355,000 people, Auchan Retail International is one of the world’s largest employers, a fact which alone means its legal team deals with an extremely high-volume and complex workload.
Auchan’s joint venture with Taiwanese supermarket RT Mart Sun Art Retail Group has significant holdings in China which is expanding rapidly. In addition to China and Taiwan, the company’s major supermarket networks in Europe provide ample opportunity for the legal team to showcase its abilities.
In 2019 the company divested its Italian subsidiary Auchan Retail Italia to Italian co-operative retail group Conad, a major operation that was diligently supported by the legal function.
