Market and strategy

Our strategy

Sligro Food Group focuses specifically on the food service market in the Netherlands and Belgium with a comprehensive range of food and food-related non-food products and services. Our individual business units primarily focus on our customers. Each has its own distinctive profile in the market.

Our ambition

Our ambition is to be the undisputed market leader in food service and set the tone in good food in the Benelux countries. By being‘excellent in practice’ in combination with our ‘intense focus on the customer’, we want to help every professional in food truly get ahead. Through our core values, the power of our people, our infrastructure and collaboration with our partners, we create value for all stakeholders.

Market approach

Sligro Food Group focuses on the market for food and drink. Sligro Food Group is active in all key food service market segments in the Netherlands and Belgium.


Our CSR vision

At Sligro Food Group, corporate social responsibility, sustainability and financial returns go hand in hand. This goes without saying for our listed family business. After all, as a family-run company, you naturally want to treat those around you and your environment decently and respectfully, both today and for the sake of future generations.

Our key focus areas and goals

Our CSR policy is based on three key focus areas that have particular relevance for us, where our most important opportunities and challenges can be found and for which our responsibility in the chain is most selfevident: people, planet, and product range.

Our results in key focus areas

CSR is one of our six strategies for the period from 2022 to 2025, which we defined in autumn 2021. Our key focus areas and targets for 2030 remain unchanged, but now that they form part of our strategy, they will receive ongoing attention throughout our organisation. We have set intermediate targets for our key focus areas for 2025, not least to make them more immediate and indicate their urgency.
