Most of the supermarket industry has fallen prey to Walmart’s drive into grocery over the last decade. Not Kroger. The Midwestern supermarket giant had a knockout 2015 with an 18% jump in profits. The following year wasn’t so kind. A deflationary environment read: aggressive industry promotions that reduce earnings weighed down the entire category in 2016. Still, the U.S.’s second-largest food retailer has a robust strategy. It will need it as it fights shaky consumer confidence and low commodity costs. Kroger was founded in 1883 and is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio.
