QE Foodstores Community are Proudly Local
We are aware of and take seriously the role each QE Foodstore and its team has in the local economy, and we strive to support each community.
We strongly support Australian farmers, and 97% of our fresh produce and 100% of our fresh meats are Australian grown and owned by Australian farmers.
Most of our dairy products are also from Australia including home-made organic ranges.
Looking after our Planet
Sustainability is very important to us, here at QE Foodstores and we are rolling out some new approaches across all our stores.
We adopted a no single-use plastic bag policy in 2018 and our customers really supported our initiative and stance.
We only provide brown paper bags in our fruit and vege section.
In June/July 2019 we rolled out new Eco-Friendly & Sustainable product ranges and have converted our QE Fresh cut range of salads, fruit, and veg into Biopack sustainable packaging. Plans are also underway to change all our produce trays into sustainable options.
Last year we removed all single-use plastic bags and only provide brown bags in our produce section.
Instore, our fridges and equipment are environmentally friendly and have high-energy ratings. We are very careful and conservative with our gas and electricity use to minimise our carbon footprint and any contribution to the greenhouse effect.
