What steps should we be taking for our future economy?
Our speaker this week, Steve Anderson, will be the first of many conversations we have at the Tuesday Club on how we as a Community can restart our lives, including our economy.

Steve is CEO of Foodstuffs in the South Island. Foodstuffs supply the PAK’nSAVE, New World, Four Square supermarkets, Raeward Fresh, Henry’s Beer Wine & Spirits, and On The Spot convenience store banner groups.
Most people will not know that Foodstuffs is a Co-op. Individual shop owners were not competitive without forming a co-op. This gave them purchasing power. Steve will inform us on how the group works but, the most important issue, is how cooperative structures could assist our business community to recover from Covid 19.
I have known Steve for many years and he is a thoughtful man, who doesn’t shout from the rooftops, but who cares deeply about our community. This session could assist us as we think through how our economy is going to respond to its greatest challenge in probably 100 years.
