Barossa Co-op’s annual general meeting in June enabled board members and the public to take a sneak peek of the new Foodland.

Construction is expected to be complete this year, although this is dependent on the weather, a spokesperson said.

The supermarket, which is the first stage of the major shopping centre redevelopment, will include an expanded ‘market-style’ food hub, an open space village square with new places for members and the community to meet and relax.

There will also be the first all-weather car parking space for more than 110 vehicles.

According to the spokesperson, 50 members of the public attended the “successful” meeting and the highlight included a tour of the new Foodland.

In addition, board members continued on in their roles with Phillip Schmaal as chairman and deputy chair John Curnow, and directors Guy Ewing, Rebecca Tolhurst, Stephen O'Loughlin, John Auld and Kevin Renshaw. They are further supported by CEO Graeme Longmuir and chief financial officer Jerie Schmidt.

The meeting further showcased the Co-op for providing a greater choice of retail shopping options.
