Who are we?
Find out more about our successful Lidl history below
Lidl is the largest European food retail chain. Together with Kaufland, it is part of the SCHWARZ group whose headquarters are located in Neckarsulm, Germany. Our success story begins in 1973 when the first store opened in the city of Ludwigshafen under the name Lidl & Schwarz KG. This store, with only a few employees and 500 products, becomes the foundation of future strategy and expansion.
France is the first European country outside of Germany where Lidl begins to expand and continues its strong expansion and growth in other European countries.
Lidl is a family-owned business grounded on a simple philosophy: that customers deserve the highest quality goods and groceries at prices everyone can afford. For more than forty years, Lidl’s unique approach has changed and improved communities across 31 countries, where Lidl has grown to operate around 12,000 stores and employs more than 360,000 people.

Learning and growing together
That is why we encourage our team to get out of the comfort zone and to break new ground. Mistakes are part of the growing path, we perceive mistakes as opportunities to learn and grow. In Lidl, everyone is encouraged to be themselves, to respect each other, work together which is our driver and biggest motivation.
