Federation of Migros Cooperatives

Profile

Migros is the number one retailer in Switzerland. Ten regional-based Migros cooperatives and Migros-owned companies are active in the Swiss retail business, and in 2014, they generated a 27.3 billion in sales, an 20.4% share of the Swiss retail market.

Since its establishment in 1925, Migros has developed its own industry. In 2014, Migros industries generated a turnover of 6 billion.

In 1941, Migros companies were transformed to consumer cooperatives, with 2.1 million members today; Federation of Migros Cooperatives was made their national processing and wholesale buying centre. Regional cooperatives run about 648 stores. There are, however, no sales of alcoholic drinks or tobacco. In production and buying, Migros supports ethical and sustainable principles. 1% of its sales go to Migros non-business cultural scheme (122 million). Migros is an efficient distributor of goods and values in Switzerland and over 97,000 employees help in doing so, daily.
