Community Social Investment (CSI)

The Group actively encourages the divisions and their employees to get involved in CSI activities. The Group continued to support Stop Hunger Now as a core project in South Africa. The different operating units continued with other activities in the communities in which they operate. This enables the employees to get involved in activities that are relevant to them and the communities in which they operate.

The Group’s divisions were involved in a wide range of projects supporting education and nutrition and contributed to and supported various charities. The South African operations spent 1.9% (2014: 1.8%) of profit after taxation of the South African operations on SED in the financial year ended 30 June 2015. Super Group spent in excess of R3.8 million more than in the 2014 financial year on CSI-related activities.

The charities and initiatives the South African operations were involved in and contributed to include:

Group

The Group’s corporate CSI project is its support of Stop Hunger Now as the Group believes children need to have adequate nutrition to enable them to develop physically and learn when they are at school. Education without nutrition is far less effective. The Group sponsored two four ton trucks and one eight ton truck for Stop Hunger Now to assist the delivery of the food packets to the appropriate communities. The Group recently renewed its ongoing commitment to Stop Hunger Now and will be providing two four ton trucks and a light delivery vehicle for Stop Hunger Now’s dedicated use. The running costs of the vehicles will be included in this sponsorship.

Saira Khan, the CEO of Stop Hunger Now, wrote the report that follows on Super Group’s contribution to Stop Hunger Now.

The impact of Super Group’s contribution to Stop Hunger Now Southern Africa

Super Group has been providing distribution support to Stop Hunger Now Southern Africa for several years and this contribution has assisted in getting nutritious meals delivered to South Africa’s vulnerable children countrywide. The company provides not only the vehicles but also provides maintenance and fuel free of charge to Stop Hunger Now Southern Africa.

Says CEO, Saira Khan, “It is rare to find companies like Super Group who inherently understand not only the needs of children in terms of hunger, but also the needs of NGOs like ourselves and take action by actively contributing to eradicating hunger amongst children. We consider ourselves fortunate to be working with Super Group on a long-term basis to eradicate hunger in South Africa and we thank them for their ongoing support and efforts.”

The Super Group vehicles for the financial year July 2014 to June 2015 have been involved in the following:

Western Cape

  • Transported 1 029 510 meals to various ECD centres including NGO partners.
  • Travelled 9 938 kilometres in distributing these meals during this period.
  • Transported ingredients to over 38 meal packaging events around Cape Town.

  • Transported 2 091 632 meals to various ECD centres including NGO partners.
  • Travelled 14 291 kilometres in distributing these meals during this period.
  • Transported raw ingredients to over 102 meal packaging events in Johannesburg area where 1 185 730 meals were packaged.

Mandela Day

In addition to full year support in distribution, Super Group on Mandela Day provides Stop Hunger Now with additional delivery trucks and drivers to ensure that this day is a hugely successful Meal Packaging Event. During this period, a further three long-haul trucks and drivers enabled Stop Hunger Now to packaged 706 000 meals nationally on the day. The event was a success and without the support of Super Group would have been a mammoth undertaking for Stop Hunger Now on its own.
