According to the CEO of the company, John Kyritsis, they have in plan to hire around 600 new workers. Presently, `Delhaize` has 340 retail objects and 11.000 employees in Serbia.
Giving the comment on the arrival of new retail chains, Kyritsis said that it is always good to have a competition and new players, as it brings better conditions for consumers, and more favourable prices.
- We are not afraid of the competition - we love it, because it affects on the improvement of business and that will encourage us to work more and better, said Kyritsis.
`Delhaize` will remain in the Serbian market, because Serbia is a strategic market, with a great growth potential. The best proof is construction of a new distributive center in Stara Pazova, investment worth 50 million EUR.
Kyritsis estimated that he is very pleased with business in Serbia, but Delhaize hasn`t achieved the expected results due to the situation in the country.
However, we have accomplished growth, we are the market leaders, thus we are satisfied, said Kyritsis.
