Foodstuffs North Island uses the NZBN to streamline their business


Foodstuffs North Island uses the NZBN to streamline their business
Foodstuffs North Island is a proudly 100% Kiwi owned and operated grocery co-operative. Employing over 20,000 people throughout its network of owner-operated stores across the North Island, their retail brands include Pak’nSave, New World, Four Square and Liquorland.

They use the NZBN to organise their procurement process and consolidate reporting and sales across their systems.

Using the NZBN as the unique identifier allows Foodstuffs North Island to standardise information on suppliers, and the goods and services they offer, across their stores.

They can then integrate that data into their two information management (ERP) systems without having to input all of the information manually, saving time and resources spent on duplicating administration.

And here’s where the NZBN gets really interesting. In the future Foodstuffs North Island plans to use the NZBN to ease the supplier and Gilmours customer set-up process by pulling in key details from the NZBN.
