Clover is fully committed to achieving B-BBEE as outlined by the Department of Trade and Industry and currently holds a Level 4 rating. The Group regards B-BBEE as an opportunity to increase economic activity by creating sustainable livelihoods for many of the country’s inhabitants, as well as developing a sustainable consumer market.
Clover has made steady progress in increasing the number of people from designated Groups at different management levels, to ensure that our workplace remains free of unfair discrimination and that reasonable progress is made towards employment equity in the workplace.
Employee training and development remains a key business strategy to support Clover’s performance and growth and to position it as the industry’s employer of choice. Clover’s Competence Development Model specifically designed to increase the competence of previously disadvantaged individuals for advancement is yielding encouraging results.
Clover also practices preferential procurement in the supply chain and approximately 62% of the money spent by the Group in its non-milk procurement process is spent with suppliers who enjoy various levels of B-BBEE compliance status.
Building an inclusive, diverse workforce makes every aspect of Clover Way Better.
