A supermarket. A specialist food shop. An ethical buyer. An environmentally sound business.
Join us and you’ll quickly see that all of these descriptions are only part of what makes us different. Yes, we’re passionate about food – and about the people that we sell it too – but we’re never complacent. Our world is fiercely competitive; one that challenges us constantly to find new ways of growing our customer base.
Much of what makes us unique is down to the visionary thinking of our founder, John Spedan Lewis. He believed in the happiness of all the Partnership’s members and their worthwhile and satisfying employment in a successful business. So, in his early adult years, he came up with a totally different way of doing business.
In the Partnership, we’re not just employees – we’re owners. That is why we are called Partners. We all work hard to ensure our business succeeds and expect more from ourselves to make this happen. Because for us, it’s personal.
