METRO, 75 years of nourishing the health and well-being of communities

Montreal, May 18, 2023 – METRO invites media representatives to a conference with Eric La Flèche, President and Chief Executive Officer, at the Canadian Club on May 25 at noon.

Mr. La Flèche will look back on the journey of the company, which is celebrating 75 years of history this year. More specifically, he will talk about the acquisition of The Jean Coutu Group in 2018, that made METRO a leader in food and pharmacy in Quebec and Ontario. He will share his vision for the company, which is focused on the health and well-being of communities, and how the complementarity of its networks will enable the company to launch the Moi rewards program, the largest loyalty coalition in Quebec. He will also discuss the actions underway to modernize its supply chain.

METRO operates or services a network of 975 food stores under several banners including Metro, Metro Plus, Super C and Food Basics, and 645 drugstores mainly under the Jean Coutu, Brunet, Metro Pharmacy and Food Basics Pharmacy banners, and provides employment to 95,000 people.
