For People.

We are part of the daily lives of millions of people

With 550,000 employees in 32 different countries, the Schwarz Group is among the top retailers in the world. Based in Neckarsulm, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, the Group's pillars in food retailing are Lidl and Kaufland. We follow a holistic approach in the way we think and the way we act, which is why we are also active in the areas of food production with Schwarz Produktion and environmental services with PreZero. This makes us one of only a few retailers to cover the entire value cycle, from production and retail to disposal and recycling.
