Foodstuffs

Who We Are

Foodstuffs is a genuine Kiwi success story. From early days in Auckland in 1922, we have grown to become New Zealand's biggest grocery distributor, and one of the country's largest organisations.

Employing more than 30,000 people nationwide, Foodstuffs is proudly 100% Kiwi owned and operated. And because we're local we understand the needs of our communities, and strive to provide the best shopping experience possible for our customers.

  • Foodstuffs North Island Limited - covering the entire North Island.
  • Foodstuffs South Island Limited - covering the entire South Island.

Each of the regional co-operatives is owned by its retail members, and operates independently with its own board and management. There are no common members or shareholders.

The two regional co-operatives jointly own Foodstuffs (NZ) Limited, a small non-trading entity, which plays a very important role in expanding the organisation's profile, and in representing the two co-operatives' interests on issues of national or grocery-specific importance.

We worked with three households from around New Zealand who volunteered for this project. This week, we follow up with each household to find out if the advice Heart Foundation National Nutrition Advisor and Registered Dietitian Angela Berrill gave them has helped them to eat better and save money.
