The delivery specialist Pro a Pro, which is part of METRO, has drawn up an ambitious investment plan to expand its Spanish activities by 2030. The majority of these investments will be made over the next three years and will make Pro a Pro Spain a leading provider of food delivery services for the organised hospitality sector in Spain. The logistics and distribution structure will be expanded and extended across the country in order to offer an even better service to its more than 4,000 customers.

An important part of the investment plan is the construction of 5 multi-temperature warehouses in different regions of Spain, the first of which is scheduled to go into operation in Andalusia as early as 2025. Josep Guasp, CEO of Pro a Pro Spain: "Pro a Pro will open up new opportunities for professional hospitality in Spain. With our entry into multi-temperature logistics and a nationwide presence, we will become the ideal partner for hotels, restaurant chains and catering companies, offering not only exclusive products and solutions, but also efficient and high-quality customer service."

Pro a Pro Spain has grown strongly in recent years and, following record sales of €40 million in the 2021/22 financial year, continued its double-digit growth in the 2022/23 financial year. The delivery specialist complements MAKRO Spain's wholesale business in the growth segment of Food Service Distribution (FSD) and, like its French counterpart Pro-à-Pro France, is primarily active in the organised hospitality sector.

The consistent expansion of the FSD business in Spain supports the group-wide sCore strategy, with which METRO has set itself the goal of significantly expanding FSD as the largest growth driver within the multichannel business model in the coming years.
