Foodstuffs New Zealand is planning rapid expansion of its Pak 'N Save petrol station initiative.

Currently three stations ­ two in Hamilton and one in Tamatea, Hawke's Bay ­ are part of the scheme. A fourth is planned for Rotorua. But the company is going through the lengthy process of planning applications to attach Pak 'N Save in several more of its 35 supermarkets.

The stations are a joint venture with BP but use the Pak 'N Save brand. They offer discounted prices for Pak 'N Save customers. Some prospective stations would be close to BP service stations operated by independents, BP New Zealand managing director Peter Griffiths said.

The Foodstuffs executive in charge of the venture, Hamish MacIntosh, said the standard price for passing trade would be the same as other BP stations. But software packages allow the stations to operate unmanned.

Pak 'N Save customers key in a code printed on grocery receipts, similar to the system used on car washes. They pay by using eftpos or credit cards.
