First-of-its-kind supermarket by Carrefour

It’s been an insane year for innovations and stints in Dubai, and Carrefour is taking it one notch further. Miguel Povedano, CEO and head of operational excellence of Carrefour finds it “exciting” to cater to the public via land and now, by sea. He said, “With Dubai’s stunning coastline being enjoyed by millions of people each year, it is a natural next step to cater to our customers with relevant products in a locale where they are not currently being served. It’s exciting to know that we can reach our customers anywhere whether it be land or sea, and we can’t wait to delight them with this world-first service.”
