sabmillerFin24 reports that South African Breweries (SAB) announced on Monday it would help create jobs in SA and increase opportunities for entrepreneurs to become part of its supply chain through its key entrepreneurship programmes.  

SAB said it has laid the foundation to support entrepreneurs and create a total of 10,000 jobs in SA by 2021 using its entrepreneurship programmes, namely SAB KickStart, SAB Foundation, SAB Thrive and SAB Accelerator, as well as its agriculture programmes to grow emerging farmers.  Ricardo Tadeu, zone president for AB InBev Africa and SAB, said the company strongly believed entrepreneurship was the most appropriate response to the unemployment issue and would help to galvanise the economy.  He stated:  “We recognise that job creation is top of mind amongst South Africans.  We will do this through a range of initiatives, including providing real, authentic and sustainable jobs that we can measure going forward.”  The commitment to create 10,000 jobs is over and above the commitments that SAB agreed on last year with government after the business combination between AB InBev and SABMiller.
