When Koala opened its first retail outlet in the 80’s, we never imagined it would grow into the supermarket that it is today. All we wanted to do back then was make life easier for families who were looking for a good place to buy quality products.

With this vision in mind, we made sure we filled our shelves with only the best products for the families coming to our store. Little by little, more people bought into our vision and spread the word, helping us to grow and serve a larger community.

Koala has grown since then yet we’ve never strayed from our core values: putting families first and giving them products that help them live healthier, happier lives.


Our mission is to create a unique relationship with our customers around the food experience.


Our vision is to be the supermarket of choice for international and local families seeking healthy and diverse food.

Social Responsibility

As a part of the community, we at Koala believe it’s our duty not to turn to a blind eye to the challenges that surround us, but be part of the solution.

That means donating to charitable organizations, sharing our expertise with small businesses and giving our time and resources to those around us who are less privileged. By giving back, we play our part in building a better society for everyone. 

The causes and organizations we have donated to include:

Kidney Savers Fund

British High Commission for various charity causes

Ecole Francaise jacques prevert

United Way Ghana Day of Caring

German Swiss International School

Welcome to

the Koala Family

I want to thank you for taking the time to visit our site and I’m glad to welcome you to the Koala family.

When I look back, I’m astounded how far Koala has come. We started out as a small retail outlet in 1980 and have grown into a supermarket with branches across Accra. Yet, what brings me the most joy is having the privilege to serve Ghanaian and expatriate families time and time again. 

It brings me so much pleasure seeing young couples searching for chocolate, parents shopping for groceries and children enjoying our delicious pastries. Families like yours are the heart and soul of Koala and the reason we do what we do.

So don’t hesitate to pass by Koala when you have a moment. We look forward to meeting you and serving you for many years to come.

Best Regards,

Imad Wolley
