During 2020 our purpose Growing Good Business really came to life. We ensured our growth and success benefited more than just our own business and brands.

We were able to leverage the strength of our retail brands to support our partners, customers and foodservice brands during the health crisis, while accelerating investment in digital platforms and operations to deliver on our 2025 vision for the business.Do not specify content here, it will be hidden due to Popup “Anylink” option.
A year like no other
Noel Keeley, CEO, Musgrave
During 2020, when faced with a crisis that turned lives upside down, devastated so much of the economy, and presented extreme challenges to supply chains, our people and partners gave their very best day after day. Working with our teams and witnessing their relentless dedication to keeping communities fed and people safe, it was truly inspiring to be part of the extended Musgrave family.
It took a monumental group effort to adapt to this new world, particularly in the early days of the pandemic when our stores came under unprecedented pressure. Supply chains were stretched to their limits, working 24/7 to keep food on the shelves, and ensuring that everyone could access essential groceries. I want to take this opportunity to call out not only my colleagues, but our retail partners, suppliers and the people in the communities we work in. So many went the extra mile, pulling together through very tough times.
