Migros' diverse activities and close proximity to the customer make it a truly unique corporate Group. The Migros Group's business enterprises, of which there are more than 40, are divided into five strategic business units (SBUs):
- Cooperative Retailing
- Industry & Wholesaling
- Financial Services
The central Shared Services perform joint services for the entire Group. Each one of these six units is managed by a member of the Executive Board of the Federation of Migros Cooperatives (FMC).
The FMC coordinates the activities of Migros in the areas of procurement, logistics and purchasing, as well as initiating and supporting the formation and acquisition of participatory interests and subsidiary companies. It is also responsible for the Migros foundations and Migros Culture Percentage. The FMC Executive Board developed the detailed strategy of the entire Migros Group on behalf of the Board of Directors.
Migros is owned by more than two million members in the ten regional, legally independent cooperatives, which revolve around Cooperative Retailing in particular. The FMC, the regional Migros Cooperatives and their subsidiaries, and the Migros foundations together constitute the Migros Community, or simply Migros.
