MAKRO CASH & CARRY POLAND BEATS ITS DRUMS FOR THE ANNIVERSARY. The employees of MAKRO Cash & Carry Poland came up with a very original way to send their musical congratulations: specially formed for the anniversary, the band “UF and Fresh” (UF stands for ultra-fresh) delivered a musical extravaganza played on 140 instruments that they had made themselves from packaging materials. A unique sound experience.

Czech Republic

DEMONSTRATING GOOD TASTE. To mark the company’s anniversary, MAKRO Cash & Carry Czech Republic and METRO Cash & Carry Slovakia have produced their own cookbook with recipes for regional culinary masterpieces. The book is available at all wholesale stores in these two countries.

China

THE SUCCESS STORY CONTINUES. 50 years isn’t old – it’s “Young & Wild”. The 1,000 guests who were celebrating with METRO Cash & Carry China in Shanghai impressively demonstrated this. And at the same time, they showed how they plan to continue the company’s success story in the People’s Republic with enthusiasm and boundless energy.

Pakistan

PARTY SPIRIT IN LAHORE. The celebration to mark the 50th anniversary of METRO Cash & Carry had everything you need for a successful birthday party: a lot of guests, showers of colourful confetti and a huge birthday cake.

50 years MCC - the flag

ALL COUNTRIES UNDER ONE FLAG. The international anniversary flag spent nearly seven months travelling through the METRO Cash & Carry countries, getting bigger all the time, because every country made its own creative contribution to the flag’s design. It arrived punctually in Düsseldorf for the company’s birthday on 27 October 2014 and is now on show at the headquarters.
