Our People


Our Purpose at Kroger is to Feed the Human Spirit. And our vision is to feed America through food inspiration and uplift. We do that by creating an uplifting place to work, by delivering an uplifting shopping experience for our customers, and by serving the communities in which we work.

Our Promise empowers and helps associates simplify their work. It helps prioritize how we serve our customers in the order of Everyone Friendly & Caring, Everything Fresh, Uplift Every Way, and Improve Every Day.
