The company: About AH Technology, food retail reinventors 

Albert Heijn goes way back. More than 130 years, to be exact. So, for millions of people, food shopping is synonymous with the Albert Heijn brand. We didn’t achieve this with a complacent, ‘hey, if it works today, it’ll work tomorrow’ approach, but by continually rethinking our propositions and staying plugged in to customer demands.

Over 1,000 stores? Check.

We want to leverage data and technology to future-proof food shopping and make better food more easily accessible to everyone.
