Edeka has announced plans to open bio stores under the ‘Naturkind’ banner. The stores will either operate independently or under store-in-store format. The retailer intends to open bio stores inside Edeka supermarkets, e-centers and also as standalone stores that will size between 500 sq m and 800 sq m. The project remains at the experimental stage at present, but sources indicate Edeka Nord may see the initial trials around Hamburg in the Südbayern and Südwest regions where demand for organic/bio is strong. (German language)
