The owner of the Supervalu, Centra and Daybreak franchise chains, it acquired Superquinn in 2011 after the rival supermarket entered examinership. In other acquisitions, it purchased La Rousse Foods from Aryzta in 2017 and, in 2018, bought upmarket food retailer Donnybrook Fair in a deal thought to be worth up to €25m. It also owns the Frank & Honest and Chipmongers brands, and has a significant wholesale business.
