ENTERPRISE JOURNEY

ENTERPRISE JOURNEY

We live and breathe convenience retail, in fact, we built an international business on it!

At EG Group, we believe in providing world-class convenience retail in food service, grocery and merchandise and fuel.

Our aim has always been to satisfy multiple shopper missions in a modern convenience retail destination that provides a comprehensive choice of quality products and services.

We know that great things in business are never achieved by just the efforts of the founding individual(s), but rather, they are realised by a collective of committed people who are all hard-working, believe in the journey and continually adapt themselves as the business grows.

With this in mind, we would like to thank all our colleagues, and brand and supply chain partners for their endeavours and contribution - without which we would not have got to where we are today - thank you everybody!
