All of the group's companies, operating in five countries, reported growth last year.
Maxima Group said it invested €75.2 million in expansion of the chain, opening 25 new supermarkets.

"Consistent implementation of Maxima's business strategy resulted in steadily growing performance in all of the group's companies. Economic growth in the countries and positive outlook on personal finance fuelled consumption, which in turn increased our sales," said Maxima Group CEO Neringa Janavičiūtė.

Investment in Estonia

Over half of Maxima's investment last year, €35.8 million, went to Estonia, where the group opened a new 45,000 square metre logistics centre. The turnover of Maxima Eesti grew 9.7%, hitting €440.8 million in 2015.

The group's biggest company Maxima LT, which manages 233 Maxima supermarkets in Lithuania, reported a turnover of €1,443 billion and with growth of 1.8% year-on-year. Maxima Latvija's turnover grew 2.3% to €676.1 million.
