Dutch grocery retailer Jumbo Supermarkten posted sales of E6.96bn (£5.66bn) for financial 2012. Turnover at Jumbo stores rose 31.7% to E3.23bn (£2.62bn.

The rapid increase was mainly generated by its acquisition of competitor C1000, which raised the store count of its Jumbo-bannered shops from 263 to 309.

Like-for-like sales growth was 2.7%. Sales at C1000 were E4.05bn (£3.29bn), up 1.3%.
