Lidl is ACC's Case Company
Lidl Danmark stands for the highest quality products at the lowest possible prices. They are currently one of the leading food retailers in Europe and aims to be the leading food retailer in Denmark. Lidl's key to success is their basic principle – making it as smooth as possible being a customer in Lidl.
The story of Lidl dates back to 1973, where the first Lidl store opened in Ludwigshafen in southern Germany. From the very beginning, Lidl had ambitious plans. During the 1990s, they started opening stores outside of Germany. Within a few years, Lidl had stores all across Europe. The first Lidl stores in Denmark saw the light of day in 2005. Today, more than 125 Lidl stores are located all over the country with many more to come.
“I am very excited that Lidl is being a part of Aarhus Case Competition 2020. It is a unique opportunity to work with ambitious students and getting their perspective on some of the current challenges and opportunities we’re facing.”
