OVERVIEW

Overview Every day, Future Group brings multiple products, opportunities and services to millions of customers in India. Through more than over 17 million square feet of retail space, we serve customers in more than 240 cities across the country. Most of all, we help India shop, save and realize dreams and aspirations to live a better quality of life every day.

Future Group understands the soul of Indian consumers. As one of India's retail pioneers with multiple retail formats, we connect a diverse and passionate community of Indian buyers, sellers and businesses. The collective impact on business is staggering: Around 300 million customers walk into our stores each year and choose products and services supplied by over 30,000 small, medium and large entrepreneurs and manufacturers from across India. And this number is set to grow.

Future Group employs 36,000 people directly from every section of our society. We source our supplies from enterprises across the country, creating fresh employment, impacting livelihoods, empowering local communities and fostering mutual growth.

We believe in the 'Indian dream' and have aligned our business practices to our larger objective of being a premier catalyst in India's consumption-led growth story. Working towards this end, we are ushering positive socio-economic changes in communities to help the Indian dream fly high and the 'Sone Ki Chidiya' soar once again. This approach remains embedded in our ethos even as we rapidly expand our footprints deeper into India.

FOUNDERS' BOARD

  • Kishore Biyani | Group CEO, Future Group
    • Kishore Biyani is the Founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of Future Group, one of India's leading consumer goods organizations.

      In 2001, Kishore led the creation of Big Bazaar, a uniquely Indian hypermarket network that connects thousands of small and large manufacturers to millions of customers. Big Bazaar today is counted among the most trusted brands in the services sector in India.

      Since then, a number of retail chains have become part of Future Group. Some of these include, Central, Brand Factory, EasyDay, Nilgiris, Aadhaar, HomeTown, eZoneonline.in and fabfurnish.com. Collectively, these are spread over 18.5 million square feet of retail space in over 240 cities and towns in India and on various digital platforms. Future Group stores attracted over 400 million customer visits .

      Future Group is also home to a large number of consumer goods brands in the fashion, food, home and personal care space and these are backed by a presence across the entire value chain, including design and product development, sourcing of fabric and agricultural produce, manufacturing and distribution.

      Kishore has also led Future Group in investing and mentoring a number of supply partners and entrepreneurs as well as joint ventures with British footwear market, Clarks and Europe's leading insurer, Generali Group.

      Kishore is a firm believer in the maxim of 'Rewrite Rules, Retain Values.' He was born in Mumbai in 1961. In 2007, he authored the book, 'It Happened in India.' Kishore and his wife, Sangita have two children, Ashni and Avni.

STRATEGY

A new normal is being defined in the Indian consumer market every day. With far-reaching socio-economic changes that India has undergone in the last decade, the drivers in urban and rural India are maturing fast. With a growth strategy tempered with localization and an inclusive business model, Future Group is the only pure play local retailer poised to lead India's consumption story with sustainable value creation.

Our multi-format retail strategy captures almost the entire consumption basket of Indian customers. As modern retail drives new demand, efficiency and consumption in new categories, our strategy is based on our deep understanding of Indian consumers. We understand the varied buying behaviour of the Indian consumer across regional ethnicities and are constantly innovating to craft strategies that address the subtle differences.

Future Group's strategy is aimed at achieving inclusive, sustained and profitable growth with three levers

CUSTOMER-ORIENTATION

The bottom line in each of our retail success stories is "know your customer". Insights into the soul of Indian consumers - how they operate, think, dream and line - helps us innovate and create differentiating functionally.

CONTINUOUS-INNOVATION

As India's largest retailer, we understand the importance of innovation. We rethink strategies and realign businesses with increasing agility to provide diverse customer groups with refreshingly different retail experiences.

COLLABORATIVE TRANSFORMATION

Creating a collaborative environment combining our strengths with our suppliers and vendors helps us create immense value for our customers which in turn fosters matual growth.

We believe that modern Indian retail rests on the strength of two pillars – scale and efficiencies. As front-runners in both areas, we firmly believe our core responsibility lies in providing protection to customers from the overall rate of inflation. While the scale and size of our operations helps us improve efficiencies, it also ensures we deliver greater value to our customers.

Our retail thrust is focussed on four principal verticals of Food, Fashion, General Merchandise and Home. These four categories together account for nearly 65% of the consumption in the country and represent mass consumer aspirations. Acknowledging this, we are creating retail pure play through divestment and demerger of non-retail businesses to concentrate our efforts on these verticals.

India's retail boom is being driven by resurgence in the economy. Modern retail still has around 6% share of the total retail spend in the country, that is estimated at around US $ 400 billion. Thus, the potential for modern retail growth in India is huge. Currently, leading retailers in mature markets occupy the top three slots by turnover, employment and value creation. As the Indian economy matures, it is upon us to make the same happen in our country.
