Congo flag Congo: Buying and Selling

The distribution network in Congo

Evolution of the Sector
The retail market in the Republic of the Congo is relatively developed. Though reliable figures about the market’s size are not available, several chains operate in the country, such as Casino Supermarché, Good Market, Metraco, Score and Regal Congo. The last one, in particular, opened the first hypermarket of Congo in 2016, with a total surface of 2,500 m2.
However, most people in the country buy from neighbours or in local markets (for the food that they cannot cultivate themselves by subsistence farming). The majority of products sold in the country are imported.
