Looking to purchase food and essential items for your food support organisation?

For organisations aiming to combat food insecurity while maintaining budget to spend on food and other essentials, NZFN offers a bulk procurement service. This service gives your food support organisation access to quality food at prices significantly below retail, helping your organisation stretch its precious funding further.

of NZFN’s Procurement Service
  • Greater Variety and Negotiating Power: NZFN has the ability to purchase products nationwide and import from overseas, especially when the volume requirement is close to a container-load size. This allows NZFN to access a wider variety of products directly from brand owners. By combining budgets from multiple organisations, NZFN has greater negotiating power than a single organisation negotiating with a local supermarket. 
  • Time and Resource Savings: Using NZFN’s purchasing service helps you redirect valuable resources to focus on your wrap-around services. There is no need to send your team out shopping around multiple stores to find good deals or order from different suppliers; NZFN’s team does the searching for you.



Organisations can purchase on a one-off or as-needed basis through NZFN, or set up regular deliveries of staple items. 

  • Staple food items (produce, tins, cereals, protein, dairy, rice, pastas, etc.) 
  • Foods catering to different ethnic, cultural, and religious preferences
  • Standard personal hygiene items 
  • Bulk frozen meat (minimum order requirements vary depending on shipping location)
  • ‘Reduced to clear’ high nutritional items from our supplier partners. In demand items with less time than standard retail.

$1,500+ GST with no charge on freight for ambient goods for North and South Islands.

Orders are dispatched within 5 working days from our Auckland DC.

For North Island hubs, please allow an additional 1-3 days for transport and delivery.

For South Island hubs please allow an additional 5-10 days for transport and delivery.
