Rhodes Food Group subscribes to the philosophies and principles of the national Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) strategy and is committed to the spirit and principles of the BBBEE Act as well as compliance with the Agri BEE codes.

Development, transformation, empowerment and economic growth are regarded as complementary processes and the group aims to foster transformation through its business activities and by contributing to the broader society.

The transformation strategy is focused on four key stakeholder groups:

  • Shareholders - seeking to deliver competitive long-term returns and to attract an increasingly diversified shareholder
  • Employees - focus on employment through equity-based recruitment and placement practices, skills training and employee development.
  • Suppliers and business partners - developing meaningful and enduring business partnerships that will provide value creating opportunities.
  • The community - contributing to the development of the community and to the upliftment of the communities in which the business operates.
