The independent grocer has long been at the centre of our communities. The local shops, where you go to grab everything from the morning newspaper, to your dinner ingredients, often showcases the unique flavour of your community.
In the case of Romeo’s, this brand of independent grocers is passionate about serving their community with more than just quality goods, but also leading the way when it comes to animal welfare and sustainability.
With stores in South Australia and New South Wales, Romeo’s have implemented a highly impactful community support program, a new refrigeration system that has better environmental outcomes, and have committed to using RSPCA Approved chicken across their fresh own-brand chicken products. Even better, Romeo’s is now stocking RSPCA Approved eggs from Rohdes Free Range Eggs, South Australia’s only RSPCA Approved layer hen farm.
Alan Jones, Romeo’s National Marketing Manager says animal welfare aligns with the community values of the company.
“We always want to stock the best products for our customers, and higher welfare chicken and cage-free eggs naturally align with that goal,” he said.
“More and more Australians want to be able to choose humane food when they’re shopping, and we’re proud to be able to give our customers that choice.”
It’s great news for customers who like to shop local, support independent grocers, and want to choose higher welfare ingredients for their pantries!
