Metro Cash n Carry opens Hyderabad centre!-Pan India roll out soon!

Yesterday, we were invited to a function when Metro Cash and Carry announced the opening of its distribution center in Hyderabad- the third in India after the first two in Bangalore way back in 2003. The centre opens today.

The short function included an address by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Dr Y Rajasekhar Reddy and a welcome note by Mr Harsh Bahadur MD of Metro.

Calling it a ‘self service wholesale format’, Mr Bahadur mentioned that they are embarking on a pan India roll out..with the Kolkota and Mumbai centres being ready by April and July 07. They are also at advanced stages in identifying land in Coimbatore, Chennai, Pune –among other cities. He said that the roll out facilitates

-infrastructure setting up the supply chain in place
-employment in large numbers to localites

The Hyderabad centre apparently provides employment to over 600 staff, and the CM handed over appointment orders to 4 of them.

For Team Options, it was a very special day-for we are instrumental in helping hiring more than two-thirds of the Operational staff-at the Floor and Department managers levels at Hyderabad!! The challenges included 'buyer' profiles across food, meat & poultry, fresh vegetables and dairy products...
The function was well attended by corporates like Agrotech, ITC, and Wilmar, apart from other service providers.
