Doing the right thing
We want to be known as a company that puts customers first through excellent service. Our employees are empowered to do whatever it takes to ensure that all customers leave our stores happy.
Integrity is important to us. We treat everyone with respect. Each of us is accountable for our actions and strives to behave in an ethical way. We value trust and long-term relationships with our stakeholders.
We #ActforChange beyond our own doors. Through job creation, affordable products, and hunger relief and other programmes, we work to support our communities.
Saving to share
We are committed to reducing waste. That’s one reason why we focus relentlessly on keeping costs low, so that every rand we spend must fight for its life. We aim to become more efficient, including in our resource use, by minimising harm to the natural environment and maximising the value we offer to our customers. Where we have surplus food or resources, we distribute them to people in need.
We’re an African company that believes in Africa’s potential. We invest in our people by developing their careers and promoting from within. In turn, they invest in us.
We create jobs, provide suppliers with access to markets and contribute taxes to develop local economies.
Our size and effective supply chains create opportunities for local, smaller suppliers to access our markets. Through procurement and support, we help them grow and thrive.
We embrace economic transformation through job creation, skills and career development, local sourcing and social upliftment.
