Musgrave Group

Musgrave Group

Our people make our brands.  Musgrave and its retail partners employ almost 35,000 people in Ireland. Throughout our history it has been the quality and passion of our own people and the people we partner that has been key to our success.   We are committed to our values which are about long-term stable relationships, not being greedy, honesty, working hard and achievement.


Musgrave delivers the sourcing, sales, marketing and supply chain expertise so local entrepreneurs can go head-to-head with the international supermarket chains.

As a family-owned business, we support thousands of other family businesses and their local communities in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Spain.  Our retail brands include SuperValu and Centra in the island of Ireland, Daybreak in the Republic of Ireland, Mace in Northern Ireland and Dialprix in Spain. 

The success of our business model is directly aligned to the success of the local stores and the success of these stores is directly linked to the prosperity of the communities in which they operate and the willingness of such communities to invest in local goods and services.  Our entrepreneurial retailers are close to the communities they serve, listen to their customers and strive to deliver a superior range of quality and value through on-going innovation and superior customer service.   

Collectively Musgrave partners over 1,450 stores through trading divisions across the three territories.  Together with retailers we employ over 35,000 people.  In 2014 Musgrave’s retail brands had annual sales of €6.9 billion. 

Musgrave also operates Musgrave Marketplace in the island of Ireland which offers a convenient one stop solution to meet the needs of today’s independent retailers and foodservice professionals.  Musgrave Marketplace supplies more than 45,000 pubs, restaurants, hotels and hospitality businesses.  There are up to 16,000 products in stock throughout our MarketPlace sites.

The support of independent businesses and communities helps create the local multiplier effect.  For every €1 spent in a local business, 45 cent is reinvested locally.  For every €1 spent at a corporate chain, only 15 cent is reinvested locally.

“Our vision is to be the leading partner to entrepreneurial retailers.  We aim to lead the way supporting independent businesses that help drive vibrant local economies”.  Chris Martin – Musgrave Group CEO
