Company profile

New Zealand owned, locally run

Trents was formed in 2000 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Foodstuffs South Island Ltd. We are one of the largest food and beverage wholesalers in the South Island and focus on bringing more to the table for our customers. We are fortunate to have the scale of Foodstuffs behind us giving us benefits that we can pass on to our customers.

We sell B2B only and offer streamlined wholesale supply solutions for foodservice, hospitality and convenience retail customers to satisfy all their needs. We cover the whole South Island from distribution centres in Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin, Alexandra and Invercargill. Cash ’n Carry branches in Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill for your shopping convenience.

We have our own fleet of trucks and use the network of TSI, Foodstuffs’ transport company, to deliver to some locations as well. We source a wide range of quality products from reputable suppliers domestically and internationally and all suppliers must pass Foodstuffs’ Approved Supplier Programme before we will deal with them. This is how we ensure food safety and quality assurance are of the highest standard to protect our customers.
