Benetton continues to develop throughout the African continent (Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, South Africa and Mozambique) where it thanks its presence to partnerships*. Next autumn, it will be Algeria and the Ivory Coast's turn to host the brand with two openings.

*In Senegal, Benetton's partner company relies upon the Kawar family; very active in the country and on the Ivory Coast within the clothing, furniture and textile decoration industry.
