Itzik Abarkhan, Chairman of the Shufersal Group Board of Directors and Uri Waterman, CEO of the Shufersal Group
, said today:
"The year 2022 was characterized by a decrease in demand in the food retail chains all over the world in light of the exit from the epidemic period and the return to normality, as well as, by the increase in the prices of inputs and wages, along with difficulty in recruiting manpower However, the group's revenues in the past year reflect a high and stable level of demand in the retail sector, and we believe that the investment moves we have taken and the efficiency plan we have implemented starting from the fourth quarter of the year, place Shufersal in a very good starting position for the year 2023. The past year was an important milestone in the group's
activities In the second half of the year, the seeds for continued growth were sown with the appointment of a CEO and a new management avenue, which works to adapt the organization to deal with a changing reality and to continue the significant expansion of the growth engines, alongside strengthening the core activity.
We continue even more intensively in the extensive work to create value for our customers by strengthening and improving the group's activity in all its fields of activity while leveraging the synergy between the group's companies.
Through the strong technological infrastructure, the optimization of the online system and the introduction of modern technologies to the branches while taking advantage of our large customer club, Shufersal will continue to grow, develop and lead the food retail market in Israel."
