    Your new job and office

    Ahold Delhaize HQ, Zaandam (Expected travel 10% -20% of time.)

    Hi, we are Ahold Delhaize, a global family of caring brands

    Helping people eat well, save time, and live better. That is what Ahold Delhaize (54m weekly customers in the US, Europe and Indonesia, 410k colleagues) stands for. As one of the world’s largest and most forward-thinking food retail groups, our global family of local brands creates inspiring shopping experiences.
