Biedronka is a chain of supermarkets. It is the largest chain of discount shops in Poland with 2,823 stores as of 2017[1] and 67,000 employees (2019).[2][3] It is owned by the Portuguese group Jerónimo Martins. The name "Biedronka" means "ladybug", and a cartoon ladybug is the company's logo.

Biedronka sells mainly local products, many of which are manufactured under the company's own label. It also sells some Portuguese-made products, mostly wine.[4] Initially targeted at lower-income customers, it is now one of the most popular supermarket chains in Poland.

Biedronka has had a dominant position in Poland's grocery retail market for over a decade, and its main competitor in Poland is Lidl.[5]
