Teams committed on a daily basis to guaranteeing sustainable and safe access to a diverse range of foods for all.

Our manifesto

We are STEF, and for over 100 years we have been carrying out an essential mission: ensuring food supplies for millions of Europeans.

For over 100 years, we have accomplished the vital task of ensuring that millions of Europeans have the food they need, when they need it. 

We are at the heart of the food chain. We store, package and transport the products on people’s plates every day. We work hand in hand with producers, distributors and restaurants.  We provide millions of consumers with food products tailored to their palate and principles. 

We rely on our enthusiasm, respect, rigour and performance to serve our customers. We are proud to be able to support their growth and help them expand into new markets. 

Together we are inventing the supply chain of the future, one that is ever more reliable, connected and respectful of the environment. And to ensure that future generations continue to be able to choose what they eat, we strive daily in our business and sector to forge a more responsible, greener path forward. 

We are STEF. We are more than 20,000 strong, driven by a desire to offer everyone the freedom to eat what they like with total peace of mind.
