It's what's on the inside that counts

On the outside, we may seem like just another food company. But on the inside, we're a lot more than that.

We're a group of people who believe passionately in the potential of every New Zealander to enjoy a wholicious life. The potential to be healthy, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally too. The potential to be happy. The potential to live life with a purpose.

And we believe good nutrition is integral to this journey. Because what you feed your body and your mind changes the way you feel.

In 1901 Sanitarium started making healthy, nutritious foods. And long before it became trendy, we were advocating for the benefits of wholesome plant-based foods. We did this to give New Zealanders healthier choices and we’ve been doing it ever since. Today, we’re the largest health food company that’s still 100% New Zealand owned – and proud of it!

Good food should also be good for the environment. That’s why we’re always looking for ways to source local ingredients and make products locally to reduce our impact on the planet. We’re also mindful when making decisions around technology, energy sources and methods of operation, to ensure that the choices we make are sustainable.

Caring for the community is a core value of Sanitarium and our 280 employees. Whether it’s the world’s largest kids triathlon series, the KickStart Breakfast Club, our free nutritional advice service, our annual international community project,  or our sponsorship of World Visions Youth Ambassadors, or New Zealander of the Year - Sanitarium Innovator of the year with we’re here because we want to make a difference.

Wholicious - it’s what we do, it’s who we are. Because, after all, it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
