A name with a long history
Dansk Supermarked has changed its name to Salling Group. With the name change on June 1st, we are emphasising who we are while honouring our historical roots.
100% owned by the Salling Foundations
Today we are 100% owned by the Salling Foundations. But there are many people who do not actually know this.
The profit from Salling Group is only used for two purposes: to reinvest in better stores, give more value for customers and create more jobs – and donations via the foundations for good causes that benefit us all. In fact, the Salling Foundations donate approximately DKK 150 million each year to, among other things, food waste organisations, the harbour bath, education and cultural experiences.
A tribute to our founder
Our new name, Salling Group, also pays tribute to our founder, Herman Salling. He was a visionary and an innovator, and the company grew with lightning speed under his guidance. For him, it was all about making everyday life better for customers.
We are proud of what Herman Salling created. Now we lead the company forward with an even clearer link to our history, but with the same ambition to create a world-class Danish retail company.
Much more than a supermarket
There was a time when Dansk Supermarked stood for good offers and lots of products on the shelves. We are still this. But today we are much more than that.
What started with a single store in Aarhus more than 100 years ago has since become føtex, Bilka, Netto, the Salling department stores, Wupti and much more. Today, we also have e-commerce, meal boxes, drive-thru shopping, coffee bars and restaurants. All to use in everyday life.
