All Ahold news



Albert Heijn is the leading food retailer in the Netherlands and one of the country's best-known brands. Its mission is "to make the ordinary affordable and the extraordinary attainable" for customers.

Founded in 1887, Albert Heijn pioneered the development of the modern supermarket in the Netherlands. Its innovations range from the creation of the country's first self-service formats and the development of general merchandise as a grocery store category to the introduction of new and exciting products to store shelves that have since become mainstays of Dutch consumers.

Today the company continues to inspire consumers with unique products and services, including a range of own-brand products designed to meet the needs of specific types of customers. Own brands account for approximately half of Albert Heijn's sales.

Albert Heijn has more than 930 stores. The company operates three main formats: the neighborhood grocery store, the larger Albert Heijn XL supermarket, and the Albert Heijn to Go convenience store.

Since the beginning of 2014, the albert.nl brand is part of Albert Heijn's online offering at www.ah.nl
