Asda can trace its roots back to two Yorkshire brothers, Peter and Fred Asquith, and a group of Yorkshire farmers who formed Hindell's Dairies in the 1920s. In 1965, Asquith and Dairies joined forces to become Asda. In June 1999, Asda was acquired by Walmart, and in recent years, has grown to become Britain's second largest supermarket.
Andy Clarke is the president and CEO of Asda. Our headquarters are located in Leeds, England.
