Carrefour Leads Online Grocery with its New Digital Experience

CI&T and VTEX logos
In late 2019, CI&T partnered with VTEX on a groundbreaking effort that transformed Carrefour Brazil into the country's leading digital grocer. This case study provides a view into how we implemented this ambitious project.

Technology meets innovation, driving business results and autonomy through an enhanced customer experience.

As the French multinational's largest market outside France, Carrefour Brazil sells more than 25 million units per year across 817 storefronts. The company sought to become the leading e-commerce grocery provider in the country as part of its digital transformation strategy.

Realising this ambitious goal required a powerful new digital commerce solution, a complete migration roadmap, and the right expertise to deliver a successful, complex project.
