About us

“Maxima LT”, the company managing “Maxima” retail chain, is the largest Lithuanian company, one of the largest taxpayers and the largest employer in the country.

The history of the Baltic retail leader began in 1992 with the opening of several stores in Vilnius. The retail chain, established after the restoration of Lithuania’s independence, grew together with Lithuania and people who create it daily.
Today, “Maxima’s” business can be boldly called a nationwide business success story written together with its employees, customers and suppliers.
“Maxima” is the largest job creator in the country. The company has about 15,000 employees.
More than 550,000 customers visit “Maxima” stores in Lithuania every day.
There operate nearly 250 stores in the country.
“Maxima” is a Lithuanian retail chain. 80 percent of fresh food offered is Lithuanian, and half of all products sold are manufactured in our country. The retail chain commits itself to maintaining the quantity of goods of Lithuanian origin, and increasing the number of products of local producers in its assortment. When collaborating with its suppliers, “Maxima” promotes transparency, honesty, openness, goodwill, sustainability, communication, and respect for Lithuanian origin. While creating its assortment, “Maxima” also supports initiatives, solutions, and products that promote healthier nutrition, conservation of resources and environment, and nurturing of Lithuanian origin, and also pays attention to and helps to reduce social exclusion in the country.
It is a daily goal of the entire retail chain and every single employee to offer good products at a good price, and thus create the best shopping experience for their customers.
Given that different customers have different needs, there operate different sizes of stores in Lithuania: “Maxima X”, “Maxima XX”, “Maxima XXX” and “Maxima XXXX”. “Maxima” stores are easy to find because they operate in big cities, smaller towns, and district centres. In the largest stores, part of the retail space is leased to specialized stores so that customers can find all the products and services in one place, and “Maxima X” has become a community store which is close to home and to which people go every day to quickly buy the products they need.
“Maxima” strives to be a valuable part of the community where it operates. The retail chain implements social responsibility projects by promoting education and community spirit of children and young people.
“Maxima” also is a member of the Association of Lithuanian Trade Companies, the Lithuanian Business Confederation, and the Investors’ Forum.
Since January 2017 Kristina Meidė holds the office of CEO of “Maxima” in Lithuania.
