Introduction to Hulamin Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD)

Hulamin embraces the need to adequately transform in accordance with South Africa’s social and economic inclusion agenda. The development of Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) to participate more meaningfully in the economy is one of the key focuses of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Act 53 of 2003, the Codes of Good Practice and associated sector codes and charters, and a significant driver of key national objectives of economic growth and job creation. 

To support this agenda, Hulamin, through its Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) programme, aims to increase the participation of local black-owned [1] SMMEs in its supply chain (procurement), and to support their growth into sustainable enterprises through non-monetary (mentorship, couching & skills transfer) and monetary interventions.

Preferential Procurement

Hulamin’s focus is on increasing spend with: 

  • Enterprises that are majority black owned (at least 51%), and/or have significant black woman ownership (at least 30%), and/or are owned by designated groups [2].
  • Local black-owned Exempted Micro Enterprises (EMEs) [3] and Qualifying Small Enterprises (QSE) [4] from the communities and surrounding areas in which Hulamin operates.
  • Enterprises providing products and services aligned to Hulamin’s supply chain (refer to the priority list of products and services)

Enterprise Development and Supplier Development

SMMEs who qualify for support must be:

  • Existing enterprises providing products and services aligned to Hulamin’s value chain (refer to the priority list of products and services),
  • Enterprises with a minimum of at least 51% black ownership, and
