Doing good

Pick n Pay has a long and remarkable history of sustainability and progressive social action, beginning well before it became a fashionable part of corporate life. This may in part have reflected the particular challenges facing South Africa in the early decades of the business. But at its core were the vision and values of Pick n Pay’s founder, Mr Raymond Ackerman, his unshakeable belief in the consumer, and his commitment to the principle that doing good is good business.
