Partners in Innovation
We’re proud to partner with Alvéole, to rollout rooftop bee farms at our stores. Keep reading to see what the buzz is about.
We know our customers want to enjoy and support locally sourced food and products - and we do too. That’s why we work with hundreds of suppliers that offer local products, giving our customers a wide range of the highest-quality products available throughout the store. Take a moment to meet some of them here:
Building Up Local Suppliers Through R-Purpose MICRO
R-Purpose MICRO is an intensive 12-week program designed to help local companies accelerate their growth and build resilience through purpose, sustainability, and circularity. Fostering growth through a zero-waste mindset is R- Purpose Micro’s goal, helping the business leaders of tomorrow drive toward a sustainable future.
We’re happy to partner with Welo, an innovative Canadian fruit and vegetable drink producer that uses “imperfect” produce to help build wells in support of sustainable agriculture in Kenya. Five cents from the sale of every Welo cold-pressed, nutrient- dense drink, goes toward building wells in Kikima, and diverts imperfect fruits and veg from landfill.
Montreal-based Loop Mission is on a mission to reduce food waste by taking imperfect or overstocked fruits or vegetables from stores and businesses which have an oversupply and turning them into cold-pressed juices. Sobeys shares the company’s “reduce” philosophy and supports this Canadian business to bring you their delicious beverages.
