The Carrefour Foundation
The Carrefour group has always been heavily involved in promoting social solidarity. The Carrefour International Foundation concentrates its action around three missions, linked to the Group’s areas of expertise: Food Programme, Professional Integration and Solidarity.
A better quality of life for all:
In 2000, the Carrefour group set up an International Foundation so that it could provide an adapted response to problems arising in the countries where the Carrefour Group is present, by supporting non-profit associations carrying out concrete actions on the ground. The Foundation is thus able to act legitimately and effectively, using the skills of local teams.
