Where it all began

In 1997 Raymond and Wendy Ackerman celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the founding of Pick n Pay.

To commemorate this occasion, to honour Raymond and Wendy Ackerman, and to ensure Pick n Pay's ongoing philosophy of philanthropy, the Board of Directors of Pick n Pay Stores Limited resolved to set aside a substantial sum of money to create a fund for philanthropic purposes. And thus the Ackerman Pick n Pay Foundation was established as a Corporate Foundation.

The Good Corporate Citizen

Pick n Pay was one of the first companies in South Africa to make a strong commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. This is one of the pillars on which the company philosophy is founded.

Being a "Good Corporate Citizen" defines our conduct as an organisation. The King Report 2002 defines Corporate Social Responsibility as "Business decision-making linked to ethical values, compliance with legal requirements and respect for people, communities and the environment proved by a comprehensive set of policies, practices and programmes that are integrated throughout business operations and decision-making processes that are supported and rewarded by top management".

Corporate Social Investment relates to financial and non-financial investment in socially responsible initiatives. "Investment" implies that through using company assets a return would be expected. These returns may not necessarily be financial, but need to relate back to the mission and objectives of the Foundation to reflect their success.
