Provincial Retailer Localization and Import Substitution Support Plan:

The Provincial Retailer Localisation and Import Substitution Support Plan is a visionary initiative aimed at transforming the economic landscape of the Eastern Cape. At its core, this program seeks to localize the production of fast-moving consumer commodities, thereby reducing dependence on imports and fostering regional self-sufficiency. 

The impact of this initiative extends far beyond economic realms, with a primary focus on job creation and skills development. By nurturing local enterprises, the plan aligns seamlessly with the National Development Plan Vision 2030, contributing significantly to employment objectives and skill enhancement within communities. Moreover, the program champions the cause of food security, strategically supporting the local production of essential consumer goods. This not only reduces reliance on external sources but also ensures a stable and sustainable local food supply for the region. The emphasis on sustainable community development is a testament to the program‘s commitment to empowering Small, Medium, and Micro-sized Enterprises (SMMEs). 


By aligning their activities with the strategic goals of the FMCG manufacturing and supply chain industry, the Provincial Retailer Localisation plan emerges as a catalyst for economic growth, job creation, and the holistic development of the emerging FMCG sector.
