UAE-based retailer Landmark Group has announced that its food discounter concept, Viva, has opened 16 stores since its launch 18 months ago.

The new 6,000 square feet store will stock over 1,200 exclusive brands of products, across fresh and non-food categories.

This will also be the first Viva store to offer organic foods including fruits and vegetables, sour-dough breads, ready-to-eat fruits and salads, and cream cakes, a statement said.

Products are sourced from over 24 countries, and the range offered is 80 per cent of European origin, a statement said.

“As a pioneering food discounter in the region, we have had a first-mover advantage,” said Georg J. Fischer, CEO of Viva.

“We have gone directly to the sources to procure our products from over 135 suppliers,” he added.

The launch of Viva marks the entry of Landmark group into the grocery segment. It currently operates brands such as Centrepoint, Babyshop, Splash, Shoe Mart, Lifestyle, Iconic, Max, Shoexpress, Home Centre, Home Box and Emax.

Overall, the group operates over 2,300 outlets spread across over 30 million square feet in the Middle East, North Africa and the Indian sub-continent.
