Celebrating 50 Years

Roger Drake purchased his first supermarket in 1974, and today Drakes is the largest independent grocery retailer in Australia employing over 6,000 team members. Growing from one store to more than 60 stores across South Australia and Queensland, Drakes has retained the same values since day one.

Our mission at Drakes is to provide our customers with exceptional service, value for money, a great range and an outstanding shopping experience. To achieve this, we acknowledge that our customers are the most important people in our business.

We value long-term supplier relationships, and our company’s strength lies in operating on the principles of a family business, and supporting local manufacturers and suppliers. We will always support local, and all profits remain in Australia. It’s the Drakes way.
