About The Tiger Brands Foundation

The Tiger Brands Foundation was established for broad based community impact, and will be for the benefit of non-fee paying schools, vulnerable groups in society as well as projects that promote sustainable livelihoods in the areas in which such non-fee paying schools exist.

To achieve this vision, the Foundation established an in-school breakfast feeding programme to complement the lunch provided by the Department of Basic Education – National Schools Nutrition Programme (NSNP). We work closely with the NSNP team in the selection of schools with strict criteria applied to each school prior to the in-school programme being implemented.

The Foundation also plays a strategic, co-ordination and delivery role in partnership with a number of stakeholders including but not limited to;

  • Department of Basic Education at a national, provincial and local level,
  • Departments of Agriculture, Social Development and Health,
  • Academic and research institutions,
  • Beneficiary schools, parents and community leaders,
  • Community-based agencies (delivery partners),
  • Funders/donors wishing to invest in food security,
  • Tiger Brands, the public and last but not least, the shareholders.

Tiger Brands allocates 5% (five per cent) of its dividends to the Foundation.


Nutrition Programmes

  • Working with partners to deliver and implement an in-school breakfast meal to learners, teachers and support staff which would serve as a complementary meal offering to the already existing National School Nutrition Programme.
  • Food sourcing will focus on working with local producers and investing in land/equipment for farmers to supplement the nutrition programmes with fresh produce, thereby generating a form of livelihood (not the initial area of focus for the Foundation)
