Who We Are

We're Foodstuffs South Island. The only 100% New Zealand owned and operated supermarket group delivering fresh and affordable food to local communities.

The first Foodstuffs co-operative was formed in 1922. Today, there are two co-operative companies: Foodstuffs South Island Limited and Foodstuffs North Island Limited.

We're proud to say that Foodstuffs remains 100% New Zealand owned and operated, working in the heart of our communities.

Almost 100 years later, we're still the leading grocery retailer for the South Island. Foodstuffs South Island remains focused on doing what's right for our people and we'll continue to do so to ensure the future success of the Co-operative.

Every day, our Co-operative delivers fresh and affordable food to homes across the mainland. Through sunshine and storms, earthquakes and adversity – our network and our people excel.

We do everything in our power, and then a bit more, to make sure life is better every day by giving people what they want – the products, the value, the experience, and the service.

Our Mission and Values

We're here to feed the South Island - it's a simple mission, but a powerful one. More than half the food consumed in the South Island comes through us.
