Sainsbury's

Sainsbury's strong ethical approach has been at the heart of the Sainsbury's business since the first Sainsbury's store was opened way back in 1869. More than 140 years later, Sainsbury's values still provide the framework for how business gets done at Sainsbury's.

However, although shoppers are increasingly price-conscious - especially during challenging economic times - ethical and environmental issues remain important for customers. Fortunately, Sainsbury's believe that by considering the wider social, environmental and economic impacts of the Sainsbury's business, it's possible to meet shoppers' expectations - and even exceed them - by acting responsibly on their behalf.


If you're shopping for groceries at Sainsbury's, then it's good to know that Sainsbury's have a long and established history of supporting British farmers.

However, Sainsbury's believe this is about more than simply stocking British farmers' products. It's also about working closely with UK farmers to raise their capability and skill levels, and thus empowering them to continue supplying Sainsbury's for the long-term.

Where possible, Sainsbury's aim to source British and Sainsbury's offer a variety of products that are 100% British all year long. For other types of seasonal produce, Sainsbury's aim to stock the best of British in season and, in some cases, to secure supplies, Sainsbury's purchase an especially large portion of the British crop.

Sainsbury's commitment to providing great-tasting, affordable British produce means being able to provide customers healthy products when they are at their very best. In fact, during the 2008-2009 British season Sainsbury's sold more British apples and pears than any other supermarket we purchased 45% of all tomatoes grown in the UK and purchased over 23% of the British strawberry crop.


At the brand new Sainsbury's Online Store you'll find everything that you'd find in your local Sainsbury's plus much else besides, including the Sainsbury's Appliance store, deals on gas and electricity services and home insulation offers.

Also, you can now enjoy shopping with Sainsbury's online store for other products, in the following categories: Food & drink, Home & garden, Technology, Appliances, Toys & games, Sport & leisure.

Providing thousands of products, at very competitive prices, when you shop online with Sainsbury's you can be confident that not only are you getting quality products, but that you're also supporting a company committed to environmental friendliness and ethical trading.


As regular Sainsbury's shoppers will know, the traffic light labels on many Sainsbury's food products provide a quick and handy reference for determining the health-value of a product, but Sainsbury's also take great pride in providing environmentally friendly products too. For instance, in June 2008, Sainsbury's became the first major supermarket to source its fresh and smoked salmon entirely from Scottish salmon farms approved by Freedom Food, and meeting the RSPCA's strict welfare standards for salmon.

Additionally, in 2007, Sainsbury's were the first UK supermarket to convert its banana production entirely to Fairtrade. Today more than half of the Fairtrade bananas sold in the UK are sold by Sainsbury's.

In fact, Sainsbury's aim to be environmentally responsible not just with regards to the food it sells, but in all aspects of the way the Sainsbury's business is operated, and encourages customers to be environmentally responsible too.
