Delivering consistently great quality and inspiring food
We believe that healthy eating should be an enjoyable, affordable experience that is accessible to everyone. We have developed our ranges to inspire a passion for good food and this is helping to define and differentiate our brands. We are committed to responsibly sourcing local produce, giving shoppers a depth of range that inspires them to make healthy choices, while contributing to the prosperity of local communities.
Leadership on health
As Ireland’s leading grocery business, we recognise we have a responsibility to lead the way in positively promoting healthier choices. We put health and well-being at the centre of our brands. We want to help people lead healthier lives, through the provision of healthy choices and guidance on nutrition, portion control, and active lifestyles.
Nutrition and healthy eating
Through better labelling, campaigns and training in-store experts, we aim to raise awareness of the benefits of nutrition and healthy eating. We will continue to invest in partnerships with experts in nutrition, healthy eating, and fitness so that we are able to provide consumers with the very best guidance to make healthy choices in what they eat and how they manage their own and their family’s health.
Living a healthy lifestyle is easier than ever before. We support our customers by working with leading fitness experts and organisations to create simple, exciting personal fitness initiatives which bring people together and help build a strong sense of community.
Centra sponsors the GAA Hurling Championships and in the summer of 2015, over 4,000 children took part in hurling camps.
Centra’s Walk the World initiative encourages thousands of shoppers to don their trainers and raise money for breast cancer each year.
We have more relationships with local Irish suppliers than any other grocer retailer in the Irish market – SuperValu alone sources from over 1,800 local suppliers. From 100% fresh Irish beef, lamb and pork, scratch bakeries in-store, locally-sourced fruit and vegetables, to specialist fish counters, our long term relationships with suppliers give shoppers the very best locally sourced food.
Live well with Centra
Centra is redefining convenience by making the healthy choice, the easy choice. Centra’s Live Well initiative is focused on overall nutrition and balanced, healthy eating, even when consumers are on the go. We worked with consultant dietitian Sarah Keogh to help create a 300-strong product range, which aims to highlight nutritional value, along with information on product sourcing and how to combine ingredients and plan menus to ensure a well-balanced diet.
