Supply Chain Management
The Group’s strategy is to ensure that all raw materials and resource procurement is conducted in a professional and transparent manner, meeting prescribed standards and quality. Our objective is to ensure that the Group procures raw materials in a sustainable way that minimises business risk. The Group places responsibility on management to ensure sustainable supply chain management in all our businesses. We also seek to ensure that our supply chain objectives are delivered in a sustainable manner.
OUR MANAGEMENT APPROACH
The Group expects suppliers to operate in accordance with our values, adhering to national laws, health and safety standards and ethics in the supply chain business relationships. We engage suppliers on our sustainability values through supplier briefings, meetings, audits and trainings. We create economic opportunities for small scale and previously disadvantaged groups in our supply chain as part of our inclusive business approach.
We provide appropriate training to small scale and previously disadvantaged groups in the supply chain to ensure that they meet expected quality and standards. In managing risk, our suppliers are introduced to global standards requirements and evaluation criteria so as to sustain our brands and reputation.
Our key products are manufactured and produced from maize, soya beans, soya meal, wheat, chicken, table eggs, mealie meal and stock feeds. These require high quality standards to be met. For the reporting year, our consumption of key raw materials were as follows:
