OUR PEOPLE

Food Concepts presently employs over 2000 people and many more thousands are employed indirectly. For example, via new store builds and the remodeling of our stores, the products, goods and services that we purchase locally, our delivery network, as well as, through the Food Concepts Pioneer brands, which still operate predominantly on the basis of informal distribution networks.

Food Concepts has actively advanced the employment of women in our company. This has led to us being one of the most advanced gender equality businesses of our size in the industry, with employment of over 50% female employees.

We are aiming to have opened 160 stores by the end of 2020, which will see us advance all of the aforementioned. By 2023 we will have 500 stores, directly employing over 8000 people in Nigeria alone. We are fully committed to ensuring that at least 4000 of those will be from the women and youth pool, which are both so sadly under-employed and with limited opportunities today.

To accommodate our aggressive expansion plans, Food Concepts has a strong executive team and a board of directors that consists of committed, highly qualified individuals.

OUR BOARD

The Board has demonstrated a strong commitment to the Company and the realisation of its business objectives.

PEOPLE CAPABILITY ALWAYS!

“People Capability Always” is a driving force in our business. On this basis, our Human Resources Division and purpose-built training centre are designed to train, upskill and develop the capability of every person that we employ, on an ongoing basis.

We also recognise and reward our people with competitive salaries and various incentive programmes.

 

We hold Staff Forum Meetings, during which, Staff Representatives from across the business get the opportunity to meet to discuss concerns and make suggestions to improve the business, as well as, receive updates on business performance. This provides the business with valuable feedback on ways to improve operations and the working lives of our employees.

We also hold quarterly Communication meetings, where managers across the business receive updates on business performance and get the opportunity to ask the Executives questions.

Our ambitious expansion plans, makes the need to develop our team greater than ever before. Going forward we will focus on developing more managers, as well as enhancing their managerial and leadership skills to ensure additional value across the business.
