Evolution of the Retail Sector

Growth and Regulation
With the liberalization of trade, undertaken since 1990, many agents and distributors have formed themselves into companies and begun to import to sell on their own account. Today, the majority of the large distribution chains have their own import agency. For several years, supermarkets and in particular hypermarkets, have become more and more important in the distribution milieu. Brazilian hypermarkets make 80% of sales of staple commodities.
