Mission: At Waitrose, we believe in championing British produce, treading lightly on the environment, supporting responsible sourcing and treating people fairly. We believe that everything we do goes into everything you taste. This is our way of doing business and we call it The Waitrose ...
As Waitrose partners, we want to know where our food comes from, how it has been produced and what it contains.
It all starts with long-term relationships with our farmers and suppliers,
and continues with our beliefs in championing British produce,
supporting responsible sourcing, treating people fairly and treading lightly on the environment.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a modern term, but one which encapsulates the ideals and principles of our founder, John Spedan Lewis.
Being a farmer itself, makes Waitrose more aware than most of the issues facing British farmers and their produce. Read more about our farm.
Origins of our food
The careful way in which we source our food is the cornerstone of how we do business - both with British suppliers and those from other countries.
At Waitrose, we believe in championing British produce, treading lightly on the environment, supporting responsible sourcing and treating people fairly. We believe everything we do goes into everything you taste.
We build long-term relationships with our farmers and suppliers, working sustainably to deliver quality produce that helps our customers get the best possible products to help them to live more healthily.
We believe in making the right choices for the environment – by reducing packaging, waste, CO2 emissions and responsibly sourcing our food.
Treating people fairly
We believe in treating our customers, Partners, farmers and suppliers fairly, as well as supporting local charities through Community Matters.
Helping you make healthier choices
If you’re finding it hard to know what’s good for you, look out for our Good Health label. It’s a sign that you’re not only making delicious choices, but nutritious ones too.
I worked at Waitrose part-time
Really enjoyed my time in this role, colleagues supportive at all times, quickly felt part of the team despite it being my first job as a 16 year old
Did not have any bad experiences with management, colleagues or customers
Advice to Management
Thank you for having me, would love to get the opportunity to return for holiday and further seasonal work
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Waitrose (Bracknell, England) in June 2011.
A two stage interview process. First interview was more to check candidate profile fit with HR type questions. Second interview was more technical chat with a walk through my CV
