Sustainability News

Here is our story.

We’re lucky to live here, in MIGHTY South Australia. Foodland is taking the future seriously and affirming our commitment to ensure GREAT FOOD ALWAYS LIVES HERE. Now is our chance to safeguard SA’s food bowl, to invest in the health of our community and to continue to build a future-proof business. Foodland is thinking smarter, digging deeper and forging stronger connections to South Australians underpinned by our seven Sustainable pillars, and most importantly taking the future seriously by talking to the future, not about the future.

Take a moment, have a look around and listen, like we did to our eight Foodland future champions tell us what sustainability means to them and what they’d like to see in the future.

Soft Plastic Recycling Program

We’re working towards Zero Waste. Foodland has developed its own soft plastic recycling program; currently available in over 50 stores across South Australia. Customers are able to bring all types of soft plastics to our collection points no matter where they were originally purchased. If it can be scrunched it can be recycled. We ask that the soft plastic materials are as clean as possible; the materials are then collected, transported, and recycled by our partners at YCA Recycling and Tumbetun.

  • Bread bags
  • Biscuit packets (wrappers only)
  • Paper goods packaging (eg plastic toilet paper wrap)
  • Confectionery bags

Working towards Zero Waste

Foodland Supermarkets is excited to announce our new ‘Peculiar Picks’ range in our ongoing effort to reduce food waste and support our growers.

We’ve been working with South Australian Producers to minimise food waste as part of our Sustainable Seven pillars. Just because a piece of fruit may look a little ‘peculiar’ on the outside, doesn’t mean that the texture, quality, taste and freshness is compromised – when you bite into it, it’s just the way it was intended to be… delicious.

Locally, this is a huge success story for our brand and for the primary producers that we work with every day. We’ll continue working with producers to bring our customers seasonally ranged produce, so you may see red and green apples, pears, mangoes, avocados and even strawberries throughout the year as our Peculiar Picks.
