Developing and fostering SMME’s (small, medium and micro enterprise) in South Africa, through enterprise and supplier enrichment is integral to PPC Ltd. This national development program, through our Procurement Portal, aims to promote SMME sustainability, reduce poverty and create employment to fuel greater shared economic growth.
