Dedicated to bringing fresh, local, high-quality food into your home. 

With 92 stores scattered across the state and in every region, there’s bound to be a Foodland near you! Their stores are family-owned, with a focus on supporting local suppliers and producers so you end up with the very best on your dinner table each night. Foodland stores have the staples covered, but with a South Australian twist. You might know them for their award-winning mega stores like Frewville and Pasadena, but their more remote stores with a family legacy behind them are just as special.

Family ties

This family story started in 1902 when Charlie Klose opened a grocery, drapery, hardware and fodder store in Lobethal. With plenty of input from generations along the way, this small family business has grown to include Foodland supermarkets in Lobethal, Woodside, Balhannah, Littlehampton, Nairne and Birdwood. The Klose family represents everything that Foodland stands for. For well over 100 years and now in its fourth generation, Klose’s is committed to providing a convenient, high-quality service to the Adelaide Hills community while also giving back to the local area through generous sponsorships. Next time you’re taking a Sunday drive through the Hills, pop into a Klose’s Foodland supermarket to experience that family hospitality for yourself!

Community supporting community

If only all communities took care of their community members like this, the world would be a better place! That’s what Foodland is striving to do, with their Good4Locals giving program. Every day across South Australia, Good4Locals raises much-needed funds for local communities, charities and worthwhile causes — without you even realising it! Their fundraising ranges from buying a token at the register to buying selected products like the Foodland Bread or Peculiar Picks range, which contribute to the store’s Good4Locals fund. That’s right… simply buying a loaf of bread is a way you can give back! Through Good4Locals, Foodland continues to support over 100 local charities, including the Breakthrough Foundation, Foodbank and St Vinnies and even the local footy and netball club.

A round of applause to you Foodland — we love everything that you stand for!

One of the things that Foodland is most passionate about is providing SA grown produce to SA customers — and oh boy, do they do it well! When you shop locally you know that the produce hasn’t travelled very far, meaning that it’s as fresh as it can get.

Plus with their new Peculiar Picks program, Foodland is supporting growers to sell all of their fruit (even the pieces that are quirky on the outside, delicious on the inside) while customers still get to enjoy quality produce at a really reasonable price. Less waste, plenty of benefits… and all local.

So next time you’re shopping at your local Foodland, reach for one of these South Australian brands.
