The Proudly SA campaign was established in 2001, born out of the 1998 Presidential Jobs Summit called by the late former President Nelson Mandela. Like all government initiatives, its purpose is to work to combat the triple challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment. To this end, Proudly SA seeks to strongly influence procurement in the public and private sectors, to increase local production and stimulate job creation in line with government’s New Growth Path programme. The NGP aims to revive the economy by creating 5 million jobs and reducing unemployment levels to 15% over the next 10 years. The Proudly SA Campaign fits hand-in-glove with the broader national developmental agenda and the Local Procurement Accord. The Accord is a pact that seeks to boost local industry and create more jobs through localised procurement. In order to carry the Proudly SA logo and become a member company, businesses must meet specific criteria in order to qualify  as Proudly South African.
