1.1.1 Culture and identity

A business model...

  • ... that is concerned for the consumer and is a point of reference for useful information for everyday life.
  • ... in which consumers and workers are members of the project and play a leading role in the company's organisation and management.
  • ... which integrates people and encourages their personal and professional development.
  • ... that seeks to obtain profits that allow it achieve wealth-generating growth, to distribute them, with a commitment to solidarity with members, workers and the community.

At GRUPO EROSKI, economic and social affairs come together in perfect harmony. This definition is part of its business mission and provides the group with a completely unique profile.

Lying behind this declaration of the principles which shape how we work is the cooperative nature of the Grupo Eroski. The group's top governing body is made up of workers and consumers, representing the owners. The result' The decisions that it reaches take account of the interests of all, transcending the normal relations between company, workers and customers.

We look to provide quality at competitive prices and wish to stand out for our impeccable, family-friendly, modern stores that provide practical solutions. Additionally, our products and activities give concrete form to our commitment to promoting healthy consumption and lifestyles.

We consider ourselves to be responsible members of the community and so, in addition to defending consumers' interests, we promote initiatives in support of environmental protection, consumer information and charitable causes. Each year, we set aside 10% of profits for these initiatives, part of which are managed by the FUNDACIÓN EROSKI, our charitable foundation.
