Description

Originating in South Africa in 1987, Nando’s now has over 1,200 restaurants in 23 countries. It is the first restaurant chain in Africa to expand beyond the continent. As a growing, diverse and complex brand, Nando’s believes that its business success functions in symbiosis with the social value it creates. As such, Impact Amplifier has been working with Nando’s for over eight years on a broad range of projects to both understand and create social impact with its business.

IA Role

The current projects Impact Amplifier is working on include:

  • Supply Chain Screening and Impact Assessments - conducting audits of its large-scale suppliers in South Africa to ensure legal compliance and a values alignment.  It also includes an annual Impact Assessment of its small farmer peri-peri supply chain in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.  Small farmers produce 90%+ of Nando’s peri-peri.  This assessment determines the impact chilli production has on the farmers access to housing, food security, energy, water, education and healthcare.
  • Employee Resilience – Recognising that many of its restaurant employees form part of the working poor, Nando’s has and is developing innovative approaches to addressing its staff’s access to health care, transportation, savings, and food security.  Impact Amplifier is working on the impact framework, research and interventions needed, at a global scale, to realise these intentions.
