Sustainability and Future of Food
We recognise the importance of championing a better way of doing business and doing the right thing by both people and the planet. To do this, we take a collaborative approach with our customers, members, suppliers and partners. You can find out more about our recipe for sustainability in our Future of Food ambition below.
A better way of doing business

We’ve always led the way on the food issues that matter the most to our customers and members such as being the first UK supermarket to sell Fairtrade products and making all our fresh and frozen meat 100% British. Download a fun list of a few of the things we’ve achieved – with plenty more to come.
Our latest highlights
