Ahold Delhaize

Onsite Creative Agency

Ahold Delhaize is the largest supermarket chain in the Netherlands with over 1,000 stores. To help bring Ahold Delhaize ’s customer-first vision to life across multiple channels, APS were a natural choice as an experienced in-house agency partner. The award-winning global agency won the pitch process against a number of key competitors.


As a global communications company working in-house with a number of retailers, APS understands the demands of multi-channel campaigns throughout the year. Their teams work closely with a number of lead agencies, with creatives able to quickly immerse themselves in a campaign – expanding key visuals and concepts and delivering fully-fledged communications, on tight timelines and budgets.


APS provides a unique, one-client touchpoint, taking any brief from concept through to completion and delivery – whether this is POS and packaging in store, creative concepts, video, photography, design, digital or social media content creation.


Being onsite allows for shorter lines of communication. Creative teams work as one with the client to ensure each campaign’s true potential is realized and value-added at every point of the journey.


The APS creative network globally will support Ahold Delhaize’s onsite team in Zaandaam – however, support will predominantly come from APS’ Eindhoven creative hub, who have worked closely with the onsite team since day one, to ensure brand and cultural immersion.

Our partnership with APS Group has allowed us to deliver on a vision we have had for some time now: to increase control of our marketing communications.
