TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Retailer PT Sumber Alfaria Trijaya, the operator of Alfamart minimarkets, has announced the launch of its 1,000th outlet in the Philippines as part of the company’s business expansion measures.
Alfamart International Business and Technology Director Bambang Setyawan Djojo said consumers’ trust in the country towards the brand has become the main drive behind the business expansion since it first arrived in 2014.
“Despite the pandemic, Alfamart Philippines has worked swiftly in partnership to anticipate the changes and continue serving Alfamart consumers,” wrote Bambang Setyawan in Monday’s press statement cited from Bisnis.com.
Alfamart has built four distribution centers in the Philippines throughout its 6-year expansion: in Imus, Marilao, Mexico, and Silang. As of November this year, the franchise has employed 8,000 locals and 28 Indonesians.
