Corporate Social Responsibility

In 2006, Savanna provided football kits to Black Rhinos Football Club which carried the Branson brand — one of their popular cigarette brands — as well as footballs. Another kit was provided in 2007, a period when all was not well for many companies in the country due to the economic meltdown. The biggest cigarette-manufacturing company in the country boasts of six years’ involvement in local football, having been previously involved with Dynamos Football Club, Highlanders Football Club and CAPS United Football Club. The organisation has also participated in grassroots football development through tournaments across the country.[2]
