Grocer ITM has grown sales 4% for 2010 to reach nearly E35bn (£30bn) as a result of a strong international performance. Sales in France grew 1.6%. As part of its three-year plan, ITM intends to grow sales per square metre 15% and an extensive remodelling programme will be completed by the end of this year.

The retailer will grow its Drive network from eight units to 80. Other strategies include a roll-out of its new private label, Itinéraire des Saveurs, which will cover world food and regional French items.
