As a demonstration of The Group’s dedication to youth development, the Komati Fruit Group has established several childcare centers for the children of its farm employees. The fundamental vision driving these initiatives is to create a safe and nurturing environment where children can enhance their emotional, intellectual, physical, and social capabilities, ultimately enhancing their opportunities for a prosperous future. These creches operate in alignment with Christian values.
The Group is committed to ensure accessible healthcare services for its employees through proactive measures. This commitment includes the establishment of clinics on selected farms or facilitating easy access to clinics during standard business hours. These healthcare services encompass a comprehensive range, including occupational health, primary healthcare, and the provision of both chronic and routine medications.
The primary focus of these clinics is occupational health, where comprehensive medical examinations, including various medical tests and assessments, are conducted. To further improve medical accessibility, occupational healthcare professionals visit the clinics every two weeks. In cases where an employee is diagnosed with a medical issue, swift referral to an appropriate clinic for further treatment is a priority.
The Komati Group places a significant emphasis on compliance with protective clothing regulations, ensuring the safety of all employees to the best of its ability. Moreover, the clinics offer medical treatment for work-related injuries and consistently replenish first aid kits to maintain a safe and secure working environment.
