Originating in the 1920's as a family business, Metcash Limited (Metcash) is Australia's leading wholesale distribution and marketing company specialising in grocery, fresh produce, liquor, hardware, automotive parts and other fast moving consumer goods.
Metcash has 4 divisions, often referred to as business pillars, each operating in a distinct wholesaling industry segment:
- Metcash Food & Grocery;
- Australian Liquor Marketers;
- Mitre 10; and
- Automotive Brands Group
All business pillars are fully owned by Metcash with the exception of Automotive Brands Group, which is 75.1% owned.
Metcash's customers are, predominantly, independently owned grocery and liquor stores. With the acquisition of Mitre 10 and Automotive Brands Group, Metcash has broadened its customer range to include independent automotive parts and hardware stores.
Metcash champions the interests of the independent grocery, liquor, hardware and automotive parts sectors through its core competencies of buying, merchandising, marketing, brand building, distribution logistics and warehousing.
With the support of its customers, independent retailers, Metcash is the "third force" in the Australian grocery retailing market.
