how it Should be
Welcome to the Supermarket revolution!

About us

hiSbe Food is a different kind of supermarket!
We’re on a mission to break the mould, by putting customers, suppliers and employees first.

Why we’re different

hiSbe has a social enterprise business model that serves the interests of people and communities

Focusing on food

Making the good stuff more affordable

Honest information

So you always know what you're buying

Responsible sourcing

We care where our food comes from & how it's been made

Fair price promise

We promise to pay and charge what’s fair

No waste

Refusing to throw away food that can be eaten

Living wage

Paying above the Living Wage Foundation's living wage to all our staff

Trading fairly

Fair pay and terms for our suppliers so they can bring you their best

Using the hiSbe way

To choose only brands & suppliers who do things responsibly




That's how it Should be!

hiSbe runs on a social enterprise model that puts happiness before profits. Instead of maximising short-term profit, like big supermarkets, we pay and charge what’s fair. Employees get above the living wage, suppliers get a good deal and prices are set so customers pay a fair price for well-sourced goods. hiSbe sells everyday food, but not the big brands. We prioritise local products and work with suppliers and wholesalers who care about health, sustainability and trading fairly.

What we sell

At hiSbe, we prioritise small, local producers and brands that trade responsibly.
For you, this means a healthier, more ethical range of options.
