The way we do business
As Canada's food and pharmacy leader, we create positive environmental and social change. Here's how we're addressing the issues that matter most to Canadians.
Plant local, think global
If you’re going to be out there gardening this season, but haven’t thought about what to include, native plants could be the answer. They’re beautiful, colourful and good for local wildlife. Native plants can help our ecosystems get back on track.

Dave cares for his community
When Dave Morello, franchise owner of Morello’s Your Independent Grocer (YIG) in Peterborough, Ont., started volunteering with the YMCA of Central East Ontario 15 years ago, it was because he wanted to give back to his community. “We employ a large number of people here, we provide a service to the community, we obviously want to attract the community to shop at our business,” he says. “But I also felt a responsibility to support the community, too.”

Walk into Joe Fresh at the Real Canadian Superstore® location in Langley, B.C., and you might feel like you’ve stepped into an upscale boutique. Women’s dresses, shirts and pants hang neatly on sturdy, wooden hangers. The store is one of five in Ontario and British Columbia that have been piloting wooden hangers and phasing out plastic ones.
