A thorough attention to high quality product selection, an appealing shopping environment inspired by traditional food markets ('halles') and prices competitive with hypermarkets are the hallmarks of the Grand Frais concept. Grand Frais runs a fast-growing network of more than 135 stores and operates as a partnership between four operators - each managing one product category under the Grand Frais banner. Prosol manages the fruits and vegetables, and seafood product categories which represent the majority of sales of the banner. Prosol is headquartered near Lyon, France.
