Why shop at RD1?
RD1 promises to bring you the products you want, in the quantities you need, right now and at everyday low prices. Owned by Fonterra, we've been in the dairy farming business almost 100 years; our knowledge and expertise are second to none. We're absolutely committed to helping our farmers reduce their costs and maximise their productivity. We're passionate about what we do and it shows.
RD1 has a strong dairy focus but we've also established a strong dry stock farming and lifestyle offering in recent years, hence our byline 'for the farmyard and the backyard'. Whether you're running a business or enjoying a rural life, we have your lifestyle and farming needs covered off.
RD1 has no joining fee; opening an RD1 Account is free. And anyone is welcome to shop at an RD1 store.
RD1 remains the leading retailer of agricultural services to New Zealand's dairy farmers, with 64 stores across the country. We're backed and 100% owned by Fonterra [external site] and share their passion for building a sustainable dairy industry.
