Foodland and eight, mighty, South Aussies spent two days in February 2022 discussing the future of our state and what we could do to ensure great food ALWAYS lives here. Beerenberg Farm was the perfect inspiration as we considered the rights of animals, the beauty of nature, and the simple joy of a fresh-picked strawberry from the patch. The result? Seven actions Foodland is taking to support our state, our community, and the next generation of Mighty South Aussies.
01. Reduce Our Carbon Footprint
Foodland is reducing its carbon footprint through upgrades to our fridge and LED lighting systems in store through our partnership with Zen Energy and will begin trialling Electric Vehicle charging stations across 24 sites this year.
02. Towards Zero Waste
Foodland is working with Food for Change and Green Industries SA to develop solutions that divert food from landfill and minimise food waste.
03. Better Packaging
Foodland and Detpak kicked off a trial on compostable bakery packaging in May this year. We’re seeing more stores adopt paper bags and compostable produce bags.
04. Great Food for All
Foodland works directly with producers to ensure our food gets from paddock
to plate as sustainably and ethically as possible. We celebrate great tasting food, and are building consumer awareness around imperfect looking fruit and veg.
05. Happy and Healthy
Foodland is committed to providing fresh, healthy and functional foods to the community promoting the role great food plays in great mental health.
06. A Fair Go For All
Foodland has tasked recruitment agencies to help us engage employees with disabilities and have formed partnerships to help us grow diversity and inclusion in our organisation.
07. Local Above All Else
Foodland is a platform for Mighty South Aussie brands. We’re committed to our South Australian and Australian-First sourcing policy and helping brands grow. Our Retail Ready Program is one-of-a-kind and helps local producers scale and launch their products on our shelves across the state.
