To commit to reduce the packaging impact

The Casino Group has been present in the United Arab Emirates for the last fifteen years.

Since 2018, the implementation is carried out with a local partner: Urban foods, retail subsidiary of the Meeras group (largest real estate company in the country). It operates the brands Géant, Monoprix and Franprix in the United Arab Emirates.  

Urban Foods aims to offer quality services and products to its customers through a simple philosophy that aims to satisfy them by bringing them the dynamism of a urban market in full construction.

 The very strong potential of the Middle East, combined with a dynamic and sustainable partnership, has enabled the opening of 11 stores in 2018.

The development is done under three signs and three formats (hypermarkets, supermarkets and express):

Today we have 10 ADNOC service stations under the Géant Express brand in Dubai and Abu Dhabi as well as 3 Géant Express in Dubai. These stores offer a wide range of products on surfaces from 92 m² to 750 m². 

Coming soon, the first two Franprix stores will open at Galleria Al Wasl with a surface area of 434m² and at La Mer with a surface area of 595m². It should be noted that a large number of new projects are in progress.
