Sustainability

At the Overwaitea Food Group we’re guided by a simple but fundamental principle: running a responsible company means doing the right thing in every area of our business.

We have a history of taking the lead when it comes to making the world a better place and we’ll continue to do so in the future. We know that the way to make real positive change happen is with the actions we take everyday – whether it’s the products we buy, lending a hand to our local communities or how we support our team members - it all adds up.

Being responsible is not just what we do - it’s who we are. We’re committed to doing the right thing, every day.
