Ahold Delhaize is one of the world’s largest food retail groups, formed by the merger of Ahold and Delhaize Group in July 2016. Its family of local brands serves more than 50 million customers each week in Europe, the United States, and Indonesia.

During a keynote speech, Mr. Muller will highlight what the driving forces of both shareholders were, what obstacles were encountered and what specific actions were taken to end up with this successful deal. Mr. Muller, who is also a board member of Vlerick Business School, will give us some insights in the planned integration, the synergies realised so far and share his personal learnings in this process. Finally, he will give us his vision on the future of the retail sector and, Ahold Delhaize’s strategy.
