The company: About AH Technology, food retail reinventors 

Albert Heijn goes way back; more than 130 years, to be exact.  For millions of people, food shopping is synonymous with the Albert Heijn brand. We didn’t achieve this with a complacent, ‘hey, if it works today, it’ll work tomorrow’ approach, but by continually rethinking our propositions and staying plugged in to customer demands.
