PAK’nSAVE most trusted supermarket for 13th year in a row

PAK’nSAVE was named the country’s most trusted supermarket for the 13th year in a row, in the latest Reader’s Digest New Zealand Trusted Brands survey.

The survey asked almost 1,800 Kiwis to rate their favourite brands across 66 categories of products and services covering a broad range of industries, ranking values like trustworthiness, quality, reliability, and awareness.

PAK’nSAVE, which is part of the Foodstuffs 100% locally owned and operated supermarket co-operatives, scored top marks in its category, with customers commending the supermarket for its range of quality brands and commitment to affordable prices.

Foodstuffs New Zealand Managing Director Chris Quin says trust is so important when it comes to providing New Zealand families with access to affordable food, and it has been a privilege to serve New Zealanders over the 39 years since the first PAK’nSAVE opened in Kaitaia.

From Kaitaia to Invercargill, PAK’nSAVE has 58 stores throughout New Zealand.

“On behalf of the whole PAK’nSAVE team, we thank New Zealanders for their continued trust and support for over almost four decades,” says Quin.

Survey Method

A representative sample of 1800 New Zealanders participated in the survey, which applied the following methodology:

• Each of these 1800 participants completed an online questionnaire asking them to name the brands that they trust for each of the 67 categories. This was an unprompted question to ensure the rating of top brands across all participating categories, was without prejudice.

• The participants were then asked to rate which was their most trusted brand in each category, and explain why.

• In each category, one overall Winner was awarded, along with two Highly Commended brands.

• The brands awarded overall Winner and Highly Commended scored higher in their respective categories than the other brands polled.
