Delicious, Local & Affordable

At Vetro, our aim is simple: to offer everyday low prices to make premium Mediterranean food affordable and accessible to more people. We are not your average supermarket or grocery store - bringing the gourmet foods of Europe and afar to local outlets throughout the North Island. This strategy has seen the growth of 5 successful retail outlets that also service the wholesale industry throughout New Zealand.

We are committed to our aim of enabling more people to eat quality food and to extend our service from the discerning connoisseur to the first time cook.
