Delivery of “acquisition of 80% equities of Metro China by Wumart” was formally finished. In the night of Apr. 23, Wumart Group announced this official message. As the technical partner of Metro China, Dmall is carrying out services in all aspects. At present, Metro has had five online stores which have launched Dmall door-to-door business, and all the omni-channel business has served more than 50,000 VIP customers.
The completion of the formal delivery also means that the global supply chain, proprietary brand commodities and food safety standards of Metro, a retail giant which is in the 267th place among the world top 500 retail enterprises, are expected to be promoted more vigorously in more regions of China. Zhang Wenzhong, the founder of Wumart Group and President of Dmall, hopes that the retail industry chain in China can be integrated via Dmall to form a large-scale retail industry cluster. He said: “I believe that after going through the COVID-19, everyone will more firmly believe that digitalization will be the future, online-offline integration will be the future, common development of retail and wholesale is the future, and insisting on the high standard of food safety is the future.”
Zhang Wenzhong introduced that Metro China possessed a traceable food safety system StarFarm which had covered more than 4,500 commodities, could ensure that food information in the whole process from farm to market was transparent, and food safety could be guaranteed. Dmall is applying this set of high food safety standard to cooperative partners of Dmall Union.
“Digitalization and online-offline integration” is the field Dmall is good at. Wumart and Dmall can inject more retail capacity into stores. 2B wholesale and leading food safety standards are the strength of Metro. Dmall will output the food safety standard, global supply chain and proprietary brand commodities of Metro via many chain supermarket cooperative partners. Zhang Wenzhong plans to realize industry integration, form a large-scale cluster, open more new stores, forge efficient supply chains and make more efforts to develop digital retail industry of Dmall to make our professional customers and consumers more satisfied.”
