Here for NZ

Proudly 100% Kiwi-owned, we're working to make a real, positive difference to our communities and our environment.

Our first Foodstuffs company was founded in 1922. From there we’ve grown to become New Zealand’s biggest grocery retailer and one of the country’s largest organisations and employers, with a team of more than 24,000!

Proudly 100% Kiwi-owned, we’re also embedded in the communities we serve, with a local owner-operator in every store.

With all that going for us, we knew we could make a real, positive difference in Aotearoa. So we carried out research with staff, customers, government representatives and more, to make sure we focused on the right things.

The end result? Our four social promises to you:

  • We support every New Zealander to access healthy and affordable food.
  • We create meaningful and safe work for our people.
  • We support our local communities to thrive.
  • We are sustainability leaders in our operations and how we source our products.

    Supporting our local communities

    Proudly 100% Kiwi-owned and operated, we're embedded in local communities. This allows our Owner-Operators to make a genuine difference to the people they serve every day.

    Sustainability leadership
