SABMiller's history of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment in South Africa


SABMiller has been actively engaged in the advancement of black economic empowerment initiatives in South Africa since the 1970's.  The group has progressed a number of initiatives in all spheres of black economic empowerment, including:  ownership, through the creation of Tsogo Sun Holdings in a landmark black economic empowerment ownership transaction in the hotel and gaming industry; enterprise development, through the establishment of a number of benchmark programmes such as SAB's Owner-Driver programme, the SAB KickStart Awards (funding and mentoring of aspirant businesses), the Taung barley farmers programme, the establishment of joint ventures with black partners to supply certain key raw materials; SAB's Mahlasedi Taverner Training programme; and human resources development, through the implementation of employment equity practices.


In addition, SAB has placed significant focus on procurement equity throughout its value chain.  The company embarked an aggressive black economic empowerment campaign during the 1980s in an effort to place a considerable portion of its business with black suppliers.  Today, in its procurement, outsourcing and contract-awarding activities, SAB favours those companies which have demonstrated a tangible and deliverable commitment to black economic empowerment principles.
