Budgens, Londis and Musgrave all have a long heritage in the convenience sector. Budgens began trading in 1872 and with Londis’ history stretching back to 1959, between them the brands have nearly 200 years of retail experience. Their traditions and values are a close fit with the Musgrave business – one of Ireland’s largest companies and itself founded 137 years ago. A commitment to supporting entrepreneurial, independent retailers to deliver solutions for customers and communities is what has driven all three brands for generations.
Today, as part of the Musgrave Group, Budgens and Londis are at the forefront of many of the trends and developments shaping the convenience sector, from the growth in fresh food categories to the development of private label ranges and the emphasis on mission-based ranging.
