About us

Bringing more to the table for over 20 years

At Trents, we’re passionate about making it easy for you to get the foodservice and convenience products you need to satisfy your customers. Being part of Foodstuffs South Island we are proud to be 100% owned and operated and offer delivery of our huge range all round the South Island. And with a team full of dedicated professionals, we aim to make it easy to keep your business stocked.

People are at the heart of our business - our team and our customers. Our loyal team genuinely love helping our customers be successful. Many have experience working in foodservice and hospitality so we understand your world. We have a large Field Sales Team and Customer Service Team, plus other benefits only our customers can access. We want to work with you to not just supply products but to solve challenges and serve up solutions.

We keep our pricing honest and we champion excellent service. Our huge range includes quality meat and produce from our trusted network of specialist suppliers, as well as chilled and frozen goods, ambient grocery products and the South Island’s largest alcohol selection.

We are a huge supporter of the hospitality industry. We are the Lead Partner and Ambassador for the Christchurch, Nelson, Dunedin, and Queenstown Hospitality Awards which focus on bringing the industry together and celebrating the hardworking folk that make it great. We are also an active member of the New Zealand Association of Convenience Stores (NZACS) to support our customers in this industry.  We are also committed to looking after New Zealand and sustaining our communities, you can read more about our corporate social responsibility here.

We make ordering easy via phone, email, online, or via EDI. If you’ve forgotten something or need a quick top-up we have four physical Cash ‘n Carry branches that are always stocked. Did we mention that we’re the only wholesale supplier able to offer Airpoints Dollars and Flybuys rewards, and insurance and gas packages to our customers.

We are in the business of food and service!
We are dedicated to being your complete foodservice partner.
