Growing Good Business
Profit with principles
We think for the long-term and we are committed to enterprise that has the potential for financial growth and to positively impact everyday lives. What makes us different is a team of extraordinary retailers, great grocery brands that are online and around the corner and colleagues who invest in our business because we invest in them. We want to build a more prosperous Musgrave that supports vibrant communities and a more prosperous society.
We are a family-run business, and have evolved our identity to reflect our heritage while transitioning our business to be fit for purpose for the next 140 years. We are one of very few Irish companies owned by its colleagues and family shareholders, and evolving the Musgrave brand is part of our DNA – we’ve done it since 1876.
Committed to sustainability
As Ireland’s largest private sector employer, feeding one in three people in Ireland, we see it as an opportunity to positively impact those within our sphere of influence – our people, our partners and shoppers. This is our sustainability strategy – to look after ‘People, the Planet and Prosperity’.
Our Board is committed to a culture of effective corporate governance which it defines as the systems and processes by which the business, through living its values, is directed and managed.

Partnering for success
Our business model is all about partnering for success. As a family-owned business, we work with thousands of other family businesses and their local communities in Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Spain. Through our support of local initiatives, we aim to enrich everyday lives, make communities vibrant, and provide shoppers with an offer that is different and better.
Invested in communities
Our long-term commitment to independent businesses and communities helps create the local multiplier effect. For every €1 spent in a local business, 45 cents are reinvested locally. For every €1 spent at a corporate chain, only 15 cents are reinvested locally.
Giving small producers a big chance. Food Academy works with and nurtures small businesses through their journey from start-up to getting their products on our shelves. To date the programme has helped over 350 small food and drink producers to break into the retail market, and has turned brands such as The Happy Pear and Strong Roots into household names. According to the Department of Jobs, Food Academy will support 1,500 jobs in the year ahead, contributing to the Irish economy as a whole.
