Services for equity

As a witness of the commitment of Casino Group in dietary transition as well as its desire to fulfil new consumer expectations, the Casino Services for Equity branch supports promising French start-ups in FoodTech. In return for a minority equity participation, the start-ups are followed for a whole year. This support includes many services and advantages which enable them to profit from a considerable increase in their activity.

Casino Services for Equity contribute to enriching the food offers and personal hygiene offer of the different brands of the Group while promoting the creation of jobs and the development of the business ecosystem in France.

By launching the initiative Services for Equity, we want to go further in our collaboration with Food Tech start-ups by adapting to their needs. These newcomers need tailored operational support that can be offered thanks to a set of skills internally available within Casino Group.
