Ahold Delhaize

Ahold Delhaize consists of different independent, local brands. This group structure makes it more challenging to analyse risks, develop common guidelines and to quickly react to large scale incidents.


During these volatile times, the importance of solid business continuity and resilience management has become evident for many companies. Adequately reacting to current incidents while preparing for the unknown future is crucial now more than ever to keep employees, customers and company assets safe. But how do you stay flexible as a large, international company like Ahold Delhaize?
