Assaí Atacadista is a Brazilian self-service wholesale company (or Cash&Carry). It is the only company in the segment listed on the São Paulo Stock Exchange (B3) under the ticker ASAI3. In addition, it is also traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Assaí unites fair prices, variety and quality to serve small and medium-sized retailers and the end customer.
More than 9,000 items are sold per store, including food, beverages, personal hygiene and cleaning items, bazaar, automotive line, pet line and appliances, as well as packaging and disposables. The customer can choose to make the purchase paying the wholesale price (when purchasing larger volumes of the same item, which gives a discount to the final value of the purchase) and retail (when buying small amounts).
Besides serving end customers in search of low prices and variety, Assaí is the ideal spot for food retailers (such as restaurants, pizzerias and snack bars), end users (schools, religious institutions, hospitals and hotels) and conventional retailers (grocery stores and local supermarkets). The Company sells its products in physical stores, telesales (with in-store pickup) and through partner delivery apps (such as Cornershop by Uber and Rappi).
In 2017, Assaí became the Casino Group’s largest brand worldwide (in terms of gross revenue) and was also one of the 25 most valuable brands in Brazil in 2021 by Interbrand.

Furthermore, with a national strategy, Assaí’s business model is also thought out regionally, from the product mix to the communication strategy. With this, the company follows with caution, looking at the local realities and specificities and what makes more sense in that region.
