Our Partners

Our 90,000 Partners come from many backgrounds and walks of life. What unites all of us is our pride in the Partnership and our commitment to providing the best quality goods and services to our customers.

The Partnership aims to employ and retain as its members people of ability and integrity who are committed to working together and to supporting its Principles. Relationships are based on mutual respect and courtesy, with as much equality between Partners as differences of responsibility permit.
