Ukraine’s food retail sales grew by 14.1% in 2020 (USDA). Independent retailers account for around 20 percent of total retail sales, while outdoor markets account for around 30 percent. Less than half of the overall retail market is controlled by chains, reflecting the considerable development opportunities that remain in Ukrainian retail. Retail superstore chains are available in the main Ukrainian cities and primarily specialise in Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), consumer electronics, Do-it-Yourself (DIY), automotive parts and accessories, cosmetics and toiletries, pharmaceuticals and health care goods.

The top four national FMCG retailers in the market are the Fozzy Group, ATB Market, Retail Group, and Furshet. Regionally, the top retailers include: Tavria V and Kopeika in southern Ukraine; and Pakko, Barvinok, and Kolibris in western Ukraine. The most popular FMCG outlet formats that opened in Ukraine in the recent years were discounters, corner shops, and supermarkets. Domestic retailer Fozzy continues to expand its number of retail outlets in Ukraine. In mid-2016 the group launched a new discount retail outlet 'Thrash' and by the end of the year had 30 stores in cities including Kiev, Mykolaiv, Odessa and Rivne.
