Enterprise Development


The AfriSam Enterprise Development Programme is a building block for growing communities.In line with our core values, we are committed to responsible procurement that positively contributes to a resilient supply chain and the economic and social development of communities in the areas in which we operate. For AfriSam, Enterprise Development is an integral part of our procurement policy, driving and fostering black Small, Medium and Micro Enterprise (SMME) development.

We view ourselves as a key player in the national agenda which is focused on promoting a thriving SMME sector as part of poverty alleviation. We’ve set ourselves targets that will ensure that AfriSam makes a meaningful contribution to transformation in South Africa. Through our Enterprise Development Programme, AfriSam provides training and development to qualifying enterprises to grow and strengthen their businesses to a level where they can trade with AfriSam and other companies.

Through this programme, our aim is to increase spend within communities close to AfriSam operations. In the short term, our aim is to increase the capabilities of our current or potential community-based SMMEs. In the long term, we will concentrate our efforts on the development of a training package for BEE suppliers that will include national, regional and community-based suppliers.
