Our Communities


Communities are at the foundation of our business. They are our customers, suppliers, employees and ultimately our partners. We aim to build and support the resilience of the communities we operate in, while creating shared value for our stakeholders.

We are guided by our desire to #ActForChange in our communities and are focused on building and supporting sustainable pillars for development, specifically food and nutritional security, quality early childhood development (ECD) services, and access to training and development. We also provide ongoing support for vulnerable communities.

Our actions are guided by three driving forces:

We have a range of initiatives focused on tackling food insecurity, which include Community Food Gardens, Surplus food donations and Shoprite's Mobile Soup Kitchens.

We partner with women who are working to make a difference in their communities, specifically within the early childhood development (ECD) space. Through the ECDs we assist at this critical developmental stage with the hope of giving children a fair chance in life.
