Enterprise development

Encouraging enterprise development in our value chains

Background

The issues

As a global business whose success depends on thriving local communities, we play a key role in the social and economic development of the areas in which we operate. Our agricultural programmes, for example, help farmers to improve their practices, generate better yields from their crops and boost their incomes. Higher incomes, in turn, can lead to improvements in community food security, health and other areas of social development.

In countries such as Botswana, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia, we have introduced new beers brewed from crops traditionally grown in these countries – sorghum and cassava, for example. The resulting market opportunity allows farmers to transform their businesses from subsistence agriculture to commercial enterprises while at the same creating market-leading products.
