The sustainability strategy clearly outlines Tiger Brands' societal value proposition. Although there is room for further refinement, and progress to be made to fully integrate sustainability across the business, we are confident that the strategy provides a focused and well-anchored approach.

It aligns with the company's business model, addresses the most material sustainability issues of the business, and serves as a guiding framework for decision-making and action that supports alignment between financial and societal objectives.
