Sainsbury’s was founded in 1869 and is one of the UK’s largest grocers, today operating over 1,106 supermarket and convenience stores, and employing around 157,000 colleagues, with a UK market share of 16.8%.  

Supported by our strong own brand food ranges - Taste the Difference, by Sainsbury’s and Basics - we offer great quality food at fair prices.  This is complemented by a compelling general merchandise and clothing range and the development of new business and financial services, together with competitive pricing through Brand Match, and the benefits of our Nectar loyalty scheme, we are able to offer our customers universal appeal, truly helping them Live Well for Less.
Our vision is to be the most trusted retailer where people love to work and shop, and at Sainsbury’s we put our customers at the heart of everything we do.We invest in our stores, our colleagues and our selling channels to offer the best possible shopping experience.  

Underpinning all of this, and integral to our success, is a strong set of values, which set us apart from other retailers.

We see these values as a competitive strength, as well as our responsibility.
  • Best for food and health
  • Sourcing with integrity
  • Respect for our environment
  • A great place to work
  • Making a positive difference to our community
