About Foodstuffs

We are active members of the community, and strive to provide the best shopping experience possible for our customers. To do this, we have made the following commitments:

• Our stores and brands all have value for New Zealanders, we will use the strength of the two Co-operatives to support them and the active role they continue to play in their communities.

• We cannot deliver for New Zealanders alone, we have a role to generate employment and bring our suppliers, manufacturers and partners along with us, so we emerge as a healthy, sustainable New Zealand.
