Retail

The group boasts a robust presence in Angola’s retail landscape through its thriving hypermarket chains operating under the well-established Africana Discount brand. With two fully operational hypermarkets and plans for three more by the end of 2025, the concept has taken root and is growing at an impressive pace.

We are proud to have secured the prestigious tender for the privatisation of Angola’s largest supermarket and hypermarket chain, KERO. As a result, we have created employment opportunities for approximately 3000 individuals, contributing to the upliftment of the community’s economic situation.

As producers, we are committed to shortening the link between production and consumption, and we lead by example. With 12 stores averaging 6000 square metres of sales area, eight of which are located in the bustling province of Luanda and four in Benguela, Huela, and Wambo, we set the standard for others to follow.

The group’s ambitious plan is to expand its hypermarket and supermarket chains to other African markets where it operates in different areas, paving the way for growth and prosperity.

Commissioned in the second quarter of 2021, this state-of-the-art facility is set to revolutionize the market. 

As part of its long-term strategic plan, the group has expanded its manufacturing capabilities beyond Angola by launching a Baby Diaper and Tissue manufacturing unit in Congo in 2022, marking the beginning of a new era. Building on this success, the group plans to replicate this model by establishing manufacturing units in other markets.
