Our Supplier Strategy

Coles thinks that the Australia produces some of the best food in the world, so we have adopted an ‘Australian First’ sourcing policy which means we source Australian grown food whenever and wherever we can. We are proud to say around 96% of our fruit and vegetables and 100% Coles fresh lamb, pork, chicken, beef, milk and eggs are Australian sourced.

At Coles we are committed to helping Australia grow, and that means developing positive, enduring relationships with local farmers, growers and manufacturers and their communities.
