    Goals / Remit

    Colruyt Group is a family business that has grown over 3 generations into a retail group
    with +33.000 employees and a diverse portfolio of food and non-food formats, in Belgium
    and abroad. The biggest activity remains our supermarket CLP. Over the last half a century,
    we have diversified our activities substantially. However, we remain true to retail, which still
    accounts for four fifths of our revenue. Today, we are active in retail with around ten business
    formats, with both physical outlets and online shops in Belgium, Luxembourg and France.
    In addition, we operate in foodservice and wholesale, for instance as a dedicated partner
    for the independent Spar stores. In recent years, we have also grown strongly as a producer
    and supplier of renewable wind and solar energy. Finally, it is typical of Colruyt Group that
    we continue to do many things ourselves. Amongst others: technology, IT and communication, as well as production and packaging of meat, coffee, cheese and wine, ...

  • Meetings


    1 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
