METRO Cash & Carry India offers close to 7,000 world-class products across a multitude of categories - such as fruits & vegetables, general grocery, dairy, frozen & bakery products, fish & meat, confectionery, detergents & cleaning supplies, health & beauty products, media & electronics, household goods and apparel - all under one roof, and at transparent, low wholesale prices. This helps us improve our customers’ offerings, while providing them with a reliable supply source. Analyzing the local requirements, a large percentage of the goods are sourced locally and are tailor-made to meet the specific demands of the region.
METRO has well-tried and sophisticated mechanisms in place to ensure that each product complies with the highest quality standards. Products are available with options of bulk packs, refill packs, or multiple-packs for the convenience of professional customers. With the assurance of stock availability at all times at METRO, customers do not need to maintain stocks on account of uncertainty of supplies. This significantly reduces costs incurred in procurement and inventory management for the customers.
The company regularly conducts customer engagement programs for various target groups. METRO’s focus on small traders is aimed at helping kiranas become more competitive and profitable. It helps them enhance their offerings with sharper assortments and more efficient inventory management, greater hygiene in the handling and storage of goods, and improved ambience and services for their customers. METRO also provides its HoReCa customers with a range of customized services and interactive platforms for knowledge sharing through a unique initiative called Chef-o-logy. It also provides hygiene and quality training initiatives for small and mid-sized restaurants and dhabas.
