Delhaize Group was founded in Belgium in 1867. The principal activity of Delhaize Group is the operation of food
supermarkets in North America, Europe and Southeast Asia. Supermarket News ranked Delhaize America No. 10 in the
2007 "Top 75 North American Food Retailers" based on 2006 fiscal year estimated sales of $17.3
Food Lion was founded in 1957 in
Salisbury, North Carolina as Food Town by Wilson Smith, Ralph Ketner, and Brown Ketner. The Food Lion name was
adopted in 1983, several years after Belgium-based grocer Delhaize
acquired the Food Town company. The name change, while puzzling for American
customers, made economic and historic sense for Delhaize. Once known as "Delhaize Le Lion," the Belgian
company was able to re-brand its new American subsidiary by changing just two letters on the "Food Town"
