Foodland supermarkets welcomes Franklin dos Santos as the new Chief Executive Officer. The Foodland Board and Corporate Office hand-picked Mr dos Santos for the role and are confident he has the right capabilities.
“Franklin comes with a wealth of senior leadership experience,” says Foodland Board Chairperson, Spero Tsapaliaris.
“Having held roles within retail, wholesale and with global suppliers, the addition of Franklin to the Foodland team will complement the strong leadership group already in place.”
Con Sciacca, current Managing Director and former CEO of Foodland Supermarkets has lead the brand for the past five years.
“I take comfort in knowing our business is stronger, healthier and happier than before – that is a legacy I am extremely proud of,” explains Mr Sciacca.

Mr dos Santos is excited and optimistic about the future of Foodland.
“As the world moves forward from COVID-19, the future of the supermarket industry in South Australia is bright,” says Mr dos Santos.
“I look forward to leading the Foodland business by working with our many suppliers and partners to ensure Foodland continues to grow and service the community into the future.”
