The 100% owner of REWE International AG is the German cooperative REWE Group - one of the most successful retail and tourism groups in Europe.
REWE International AG forms part of the German REWE Group. With nearly 330,000 employees and approximately 52.4 billion euros in sales (2016), the REWE Group is one of the leading retail and tourism groups in both Germany and Europe. Its roots reach back to the year 1927. At that time, several cooperatives joined to organise the joint purchasing of foodstuffs. These cooperative roots can still be felt today: The REWE Group actively assumes its responsibilities and focuses on sustainable long-term growth.
Innovating into the future
The food retail and the tourism industry are both changing: internationalisation is forging ahead, consumer trends are evolving more and more quickly, sustainability and digitalization are a must. The REWE Group has responded to these changes through its strategic direction, as well as through innovation: it is focusing on organic growth, consistently pursuing its sustainable development strategy, modernising the organisation, and constantly developing new retail formats and channels.
