Carrefour: quality products
at competitive prices

We provide a wide range of quality products in partnership with Carrefour hypermarkets and smaller Carrefour Market supermarkets, many sourced from local suppliers. This allows us to meet the expectations of customers keen to know where their products come from, by ensuring complete traceability and unbeatable prices.

Supeco targets the budget segment and gives both individuals and businesses the option to buy retail or in bulk. The first Supeco store opened in April 2019 in Dakar, Senegal.

A partner of Jumia (since 2018), Africa’s leading e-commerce company, CFAO Consumer and Carrefour also enable consumers in Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal to order products online from dedicated Carrefour stores, expanding the offer through online sales.

PlaYce shopping centres are also social hubs, fostering a sense of community. They include a Carrefour supermarket, food court and shopping arcade with an array of different stores and services.

Brand franchises

CFAO Consumer has established preferred partnerships with four leading international brands in three key areas: clothing with Lacoste and Jules; beauty with Beauty Success; toys and games with La Grande Récré. These brands are an integral part of our shopping centres and we help them grow in high-potential markets by offering middle-class consumers an array of quality products and services tailored to their needs.
