They are called, Walmart, Carrefour, Leclerc ... In 70 years, these small grocers have become powerful multinationals. But this race for low prices is not without consequence... After decades of growth, GAFA are trying to get their hands on the distribution market...
The few suppliers daring to testify evoke a climate of permanent threat, mafia methods, an organized racket imagined by ingenious lawyers employed by major brands.
In France, the agricultural world is bogged down in crisis, in the agro-food industry; professionals are also blowing the whistle. Walmart has seen a decline in sales in recent years. Carrefour announces the loss of several thousand jobs. Changes in consumption patterns and the arrival of giants in e-commerce such as Amazon are shaking up the domination of these large groups which were previously thought to be unshakable. Will Amazon's algorithms manage to get their hands on mass distribution by creating stores where the staff will be reduced to a bare minimum?
