Wholesale & Retail Industry
The wholesale and retail industry in Malta is a thriving industry with growing European and global reach.
Since joining the EU the face of the retail industry in Malta has changed from a predominantly family owned retail industry to a larger European led retail and franchise dominated retail market. Change on such a scale resulted in the Maltese retail market having to diversify and restructure the retail industry to compete with larger established brands and also changing consumer demands. With increased competition, changing industry standards and new focus on ever-changing consumer trends Malta’s retail market has had to step up a gear.
The wholesale industry has seen growth since accession to the EU. By widening its trade links, this enabled Malta to import more. As such, the wholesale market has grown to meet both local demand.
