In South Africa, Shoprite operates 458 retail stores under the Shoprite brand. In 2017, for the fourth successive year, Shoprite was voted as the top grocery store by the Sunday Times Top Brands report. In the same year, Shoprite sold 7.4 billion items as it led the low-price market with discounted food programs and subsidies that supported local communities and individuals suffering through the difficult economic climate. Shoprite’s dedication towards employee training and opportunities for the underprivileged and disabled yielded successful programs like Decade of the Deaf Initiative launched in 2009 to attract many of South Africa’s deaf population who struggle to find work. Its commitment to provide equal opportunity employment has resulted in a South African workforce that is 65% female. Shoprite’s environmental commitment to sustainability included the introduction of recycled bags designed to have a major environmental impact as customers take home about a half billion Shoprite bags each year.
