Our vision is simple: improve the livelihoods of the communities in which we operate in. We do this by investing in our local supply chains, supporting local jobs and playing our role in community support programs.
Volgren is always looking at ways it can connect with the local community. Our product – in fact, our whole business – is based on people. That’s encapsulated in our motto: Moving People, Moving Stories.

Foodbank Victoria

When Foodbank Victoria and Kinetic presented the idea of a mobile supermarket to Volgren we immediately said yes. Our engineering team went to work converting a Volgren bodied, 18-metre articulate bus (ex-Skybus) giving it a second life of providing free food to vulnerable Victorians across Melbourne.

With entry at the back and exit at the front, the vehicles have purpose-built shelving and refrigeration stocked with a range of fresh produce, pantry and staple items.

The first bus was such a success, that a second mobile supermarket hit the road in May 2022.
