Jumbo is a fast-growing Dutch supermarket chain with an annual turnover of €7 billion in 2017. In 2018 the company employed 60,000 people in over 600 stores. It is a family-owned chain, with all shares owned by the Van Eerd family: Karel van Eerd and his three children Frits, Colette and Monique. The cycling team shares it sponsorship with a skating team of the same name. “Jumbo has supported its skating and cycling teams for years, and we want to offer our talented sportspeople the opportunity to excel,” Colette Cloosterman-Van Eerd has said. “This partnership also offers the chance to inspire millions of our customers to live more healthily. By joining forces with these two team and our company, we can actively demonstrate our expertise in healthy nutrition and together encourage our customers to take exercise regularly.”
