Woolworths Holdings Limited is a South African-based retail group listed on JSE Limited. In South Africa, the group trades through Wolworths (Proprietary) Limited, a respected chain of retail stores offering discerning customers a selected range of quality clothing, food, homeware, beauty, and financial services under its own brand name. Free range and organic choices are on the increase in stores as Woolworths moves ahead on its â??good food journeyâ??. Organic foods are audited and certified by independent bodies. The information found on every package of the company's food and clothing labels that indicate materials used and country of manufacture, enable consumers to make informed choices about what they purchase.
Woolworths Holdings also owns Country Road Limited, a leading clothing and homeware retailer listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.
As it has grown, evolved and adapted to the changing world around it, Woolworths has remained true to its core values of quality, integrity, value, energy, innovation and sustainability. It has continually strived to make a difference in the lives of its customers. Known by generations of South Africans simply as â??Wooliesâ??, it has grown to become part of the fabric of South African society, a benchmark for excellence and an icon of quality.
Statement of Sustainability
We are committed to only use certified sustainable palm oil in our products by 2015.
As soon as we become an RSPO member, we intend to purchase GreenPalm certificates to cover our annual palm oil usage which we estimate is 1000 tonnes a year (a database of our usage is currently being compiled).
