An eventful year

In 2017 ICA Gruppen strengthened its positions in both grocery retail and the pharmacy market in Sweden. The Baltic operations also developed well and the creation of ICAx marked an important step forward along the digitalisation path.

Investments in sustainability

ICA Gruppen wants to be a positive force in society. In recent years many initiatives have been launched to reduce environmental impact, increase diversity and inspire customers to make sustainable and healthy choices.

ICA 100 years and onwards

In 2017 it was 100 years since the ICA Idea was created. The ICA Idea, based on cooperation between independent retailers, is one of ICA Gruppen's main success factors and is still the foundation of the business model.

Strengthening our leading position

”Increased cooperation within the Group and clear links between physical and digital channels will provide brand new opportunities to create even more attractive customer offerings.”

Per Strömberg, CEO ICA Gruppen
