  International best practice guidelines to empower and support local barley farmers  

SAB recently embarked on an initiative together with WWF South Africa to develop a set of criteria aimed at helping barley farmers understand their resilience and threats against a well-researched set of best practices around sustainable agriculture. Called the "Better Barley, Better Beer" initiative, we sought to customise international best practice guidelines to empower and support local barley farmers towards a more sustainable future.

These guidelines are designed to support farmers to grow barley on a more sustainable basis from economic, social and environmental perspectives. It is in our common interest to grow the economic assets of the farmers while enhancing the social conditions and environmental integrity of the landscape. SAB aims to walk the journey with our farmers and learn together on how to enhance the already substantial contribution of barley farming to the country, its people and the economy. The "Better Barley, Better Beer" Initiative is a long term and innovative approach to ensure that our farmers remain sustainable in a rapidly changing world and our consumers continue to enjoy affordable and top quality beers into the future.
