IKI - not only the first croissants in Lithuania, but also the first autonomous shops
The first croissants and baguettes in Lithuania, the first automated checkouts, the first loyalty card and the first shop without people – all of these were pioneered in Lithuania by the IKI supermarket chain.
“We have been and continue to be innovators in many areas,” says Nijolė Kvietkauskaitė, Managing Director of IKI Lietuva.
“We have an incredibly creative and talented team and this is the reason why we are able to innovate so much, because initiatives come from people.”

The first IKI store opened its doors in 1992. Since then, we have been providing a new food and shopping experience – offering a modern food, shopping and service culture. Although a lot has changed and improved since we opened the first online store, the origins and identity of IKI have remained the same: we know what good food is, we understand what Lithuanians want and choose, we carefully and competently select, prepare the best, we provide the freshest food and quality customer service.
