TIGER BRANDS SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT (SED)
Tiger Brands has been actively involved in CSI for more than 10 years, providing access to food for thousands of beneficiaries each year. The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)’s BBBEE Codes of Good Practice highlight the Socio-Economic Development (SED) element of the BEE scorecard as initiatives that support sustainable economic inclusion for previously disadvantaged beneficiaries, thereby encouraging an integrated, supportive approach to social investment. In keeping with this approach, as well as through considering the National Development Plan (NDP), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the King IV Report, Tiger Brands SED Programme has been developed to reflect a sustainable, environmentally responsible approach to SED within an overarching focus on food security, nutrition and health.
This focus is achieved through 6 interconnected programmes:
Food and Nutrition Support Programme:
The provision of nutritionally balanced food parcels to the most in-need beneficiaries across South Africa through partnership with food-focused NGOs
Customer, Stakeholder and Brand CSI:
Customer and brand-aligned initiatives with a meaningful social impact
Opportunities for all Tiger Brands employees to engage in social causes that are close to their hearts and in the communities that they live and work in
Beneficiary Capacity Building:
Targeted community-based training around nutrition, food handling, health, food security and sustainability
Community and Household Food Garden Initiative:
Training, support and mentorship for the establishment of sustainable community and household food gardens
Community Enterprise Development:
Training, support and mentorship for the identification and establishment of viable community enterprises within the space of food security.
Tiger Brands aims not only to distribute food parcels to beneficiaries, but to also assist them in sustaining themselves and the communities they operate in.
