The supermarket retail offering includes leading international food brands and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) products as well as Choppies´ own private label for value-minded consumers.
Our Company, Choppies is the largest, fastest growing grocery retailer in Africa, outside of South Africa. Building from its strong market-leading base in Botswana, Choppies is growing rapidly and profitably in South Africa and Zimbabwe, and has recently opened stores in Zambia, Kenya and Tanzania.

The seven strategically located distribution centers enable the group to provide an uninterrupted supply of goods to our stores as well as accumulate critical mass to negotiate better prices for our customers.
