Long-term stable relationships

We’ve been in business for over 140 years and we’re not stopping now. Our focus on achieving long-term win/win outcomes for all our stakeholders is achieved by building mutual relationships based on trust and respect.

Not being greedy

We’re generous and unselfish in our efforts to do more for our colleagues, customers and consumers. And when we’re successful, we share the benefits of that success. Not being greedy means sharing knowledge and expertise across our business.


We act in a straightforward way and we support each other to behave with honesty and integrity. We do the right thing by our colleagues, customers and suppliers.

We are committed to looking for ways to improve and change as needed so we can go above and beyond to deliver for our communities and business. We bring our good efforts to work every day so we can succeed in a competitive and fast-paced market.


As a 6th generation family business, we’re clear on delivering on our promises to our people and customers. With our purpose of Growing Good Business underpinning our business goals, we can measure and celebrate our successes as we achieve them.
