REWE (German pronunciation: [ˈʁeːvə]) is a supermarket chain in Germany and part of the Cologne-based REWE Group. The name originated from an abbreviation of the original name "Revisionsverband der Westkauf-Genossenschaften" (Audit union for Westkauf-Cooperatives). REWE has more than 15,000 stores and 211,000 employees worldwide. As of 2015 they have publicised plans for investing more heavily in their online presence.[1]

Their catchphrase is "Dein Markt". (English: Your market.)

Their own store brand products are branded "ja!" (Discounter-price), "REWE Beste Wahl" ("Normal" price), "REWE Feine Welt" (High price, special items), "REWE Bio" (Organic), "REWE Regional" and "REWE to go".[2]
