The PIC is delighted to have funded this transaction which will create approximately a thousand much needed jobs in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Our business is to ensure that we invest for development and to change the lives of ordinary people. This transaction will see ordinary community growers play a significant part in the business as they will supply all the raw material needed for the success of the business. The community owns a significant 15% equity in the business. This transaction also contributes immensely towards food security and the eradication of poverty. These together with job creation are part of Government’s programme. We are therefore delighted to contribute towards Government’s greater plan of job creation and the eradication of poverty,” said the PIC’s CIO Daniel Matjila.
