Summary Ahold is, no doubt, a major retailer. In the Netherlands, Albert Heijn is the largest supermarket chain. In the U.S., its subsidiaries Giant and Stop & Shop are the 5th largest retailers and are also leaders in online grocery sales. This means Ahold has direct influence on a large number of consumers and employees. But through their enormous buying power, retailers can also exert influence on the labour conditions of millions of workers worldwide that are employed by their providers.
