What we do, who we are, how we got here, where we're going, and what we believe

What We Do

We strive to improve the supply chain between Qikiqtaaluk Region, Nunavut, and the rest of Canada.  We aim to bring Nunavummiut closer to the things they need and want, and to do it with care for our clients and their products.

 

Who We Are

We are a dedicated team of professionals with an intimate knowledge of food, aviation, logistics and service.  We are your friends in the South, your partners in success. 

 

How We Got Here

Kit was approached by one of her friends at her husband's grocery store.  Her friend asked, "Can you send me some food?", and Kit replied, "Yes." - There, in that moment, an opportunity and a need danced to the eternal tune of supply and demand, and the Northern Shopper was conceived.

Initially a personal shopping service that began 'accidentally' in 2011, The Northern Shopper now serves the personal, hospitality, construction and mining sectors, while regularly innovating it's processes to bring food costs down for businesses, individuals and families living in Nunavut.

 

Where We Are Going

We will continue to work tirelessly for our clients to improve your life in Nunavut.  And we will strive to be a household name.  A name that stands for quality, trust, reliability, and a force for positivity.

 

Core Values

Nunavummiut are an essential part of the Canadian identity. We believe we have an important role to play in the advancement of Nunavut by reducing the cost and increasing the availability of consumer, commercial, and industrial goods.

We believe Food Security is one of the most fundamental priorities of a society, and we will strive to improve Food Security for any person who wants to improve their life with access to Nutritious Food.  For that reason we believe the Nutrition North Program is a strong tool which aligns with our values.

We believe in a safe, positive work environment and giving our team great reasons to come to work in the morning: self directed goals, strong client relationships, a workplace that feels like home, and limitless possibilities to explore the potential of their industry.

Kaizen. This is the principle of continuous improvement - it means "Good Change".  

This is how we channel our efforts - always seeking better ways to do things - to improve our lives and the experience of doing business with each other.
