Our brand purpose and our values

Our brand purpose reflects who we are, what sets us apart and what drives us. It expresses the vision and ambition of our Group. It affirms the economic and social role embraced by our company. It is the common denominator of the aspirations of all employees, from managers to staff.

The STEF Group's brand purpose

Committed teams that guarantee sustainable and safe access to food diversity for all on a daily basis.

Our manifesto

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
