The BerryWorld Way

We're on a mission to shift our world towards fair food systems that respect people and our planet.

BerryWorld have been working with growers across South Africa for over 20 years and are now five years in to working with growers in Zimbabwe to help extend the growing season, which has opened up opportunities to further our focus on fair working and living conditions at every stage of our supply.

Stronger together in ZIMBABWE

Over the last two years BerryWorld have been working closely with our growers in Zimbabwe to conduct a comprehensive ethical and compliance audit, concluding with our first Zimbabwe Stronger Together workshop.

All sites expressed gratitude for the workshop and Bosswell Chirume, our local compliance and ethical consultant, commented:

"Truly inspiring and I've learnt so much. It has adjusted the way I think about the recruitment methods. I've taken away key actionables to improve systems, update policies and training."

Uplifting Life

Building better working conditions

Fundamentally we want to ensure proper working conditions at every stage of our supply, to enable a work space that treats workers fairly and

As such we've worked with our growers over the last five years to continue audits and due diligence but also seek opportunities for uplift for those working on the farms.

We're proud to see a huge number of ideas and projects come to fruition on these farms, you can see a collection of these in this video.

Community Commitment

Building a community beyond the farm

Beyond work life on the farms, we're looking to grow goodness in the local communities to ensue a sustainable future for the farms and their future.

Working with our growers and supporting foundations, we've found ways to support the communities and invest in key areas that support the local community.

We're excited to see such projects come to fruition on these communities, you can see a vision of these in this video.

Future focus

Setting our sights on a sustainalicious vision

We're proud to lead by example, more than mere sustainability preachers, or even teachers, but sustainability doers. We look forward to sharing more progress as the projects that are underway come to realisation.

We're currently heavily vested in a bee pollination project that will not only support pollination security but also support the sustainability of other local businesses.

Another focal area is the development and deployment of menstruation data collection surveys to understand possible barriers for females coming to work.

The BerryWorld Zimbabwe growers are going above and beyond, ensuring they treat all their staff fairly and striving for improvement which has been reflected in worker feedback.
