Corporate Social Responsibility Report

Looking after our patch

More than ever, we’ve seen how important it is that all New Zealanders have access to healthy and affordable food. We recognise we have an important role to play to make that happen and ensuring we operate in a way that delivers our social promises playing our part in every community.

Helping Kiwi kids at Starship

With our customers help we’ve raised more than $1.3million for the Starship Foundation. The funds we donate to Starship go towards projects, programmes and equipment to care for New Zealand’s youth and their families.

Our local communities

Our local stores proudly go beyond their front doors to support local organisations and causes that reflect their communities. Each year, our owners donate thousands of dollars in groceries to local schools, sporting groups, community groups, and other not-for-profit organisations. 

All requests from community groups need to be made in writing directly to the operator of the local store.

Contact your local store to apply for sponsorship.
