Sourcing that is better together

Certified products and ingredients

We will work with our suppliers and producers to make life easier for our customers by offering quality, safe and trusted products – sourced in an ethical, transparent and responsible way.

Coles is committed to using independent and internationally recognised certification programs for our own brand tea and coffee, and where cocoa and palm oil are used as an ingredient in Coles Own Brand products. These programs support ethical practices and environmental protection in these supply chains.

Responsibly sourced seafood

All Coles Brand seafood has been responsibly sourced since 2015. Our responsibly sourced Coles Brand seafood includes seafood available at the deli, canned Coles Brand tuna in the grocery aisle and frozen Coles Brand products such as crumbed fillets and fish fingers. Our range includes both wild-caught and farmed seafood.

Coles’ Responsibly Sourced Seafood Program recognises a range of certification and assessment programs which ensure potential impacts on marine health and the environment are carefully monitored.

All Coles seafood products have Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification or meet Coles Responsibly Sourced Seafood criteria. Products are labelled according to the methodology under which they have been certified.

In 2015, we met our voluntary commitment to remove microbeads from Coles Brand products. This was two years ahead of plan.
