We know Australia produces great quality food so we work hard to source as much of our fresh food as possible from local growers around the country.
Our Australian First Sourcing Policy means that in FY20, 96% of fresh produce, by volume, was sourced from our supply partners from all over Australia (excluding floral, nuts, dried fruit, sauces, dressings and packaged salads). In FY20, 100% of fresh lamb, pork, chicken, beef, milk and eggs and 100% of Own Brand frozen vegetables were Australian grown.
Plus, we're helping Australian food producers with drought and disaster relief and offering our support for innovative projects through the $50M Coles Nurture Fund.
