Part of
your world

As a trade and tourism company, the REWE Group is part of your world every day: whether you are shopping for food, DIY and gardening items, buying food on-the-go or planning your next holiday.

23

countries

In Germany and 22 other countries, the REWE Group was present with its stores, travel agencies and online business in 2020. As a cooperative with a tradition of over 90 years, we are well aware of our environmental and social obligations towards future generations. Securing a sustainable future is our mission.


In

1927

17 purchasing cooperatives
joined forces to create “Revisionsverband der Westkaufgenossenschaften” – or simply: REWE – for the purpose of organising the joint buying of food. From these beginnings a cooperative group was born that today is present and successful internationally.

Since 2008, sustainability has been an integral part of the REWE Group’s mission and daily business through the group-wide sustainability management. The approach is based on four pillars: “Green Products”, “Energy, Climate and the Environment”, “Employees” and “Social Commitment”.
