About the Distell Foundation

Investing in our communities

The Distell Foundation, housed at the Oude Libertas Centre in Stellenbosch, is an umbrella body for Distell's corporate social investment activities.

The Foundation's approach is to:
  • Create shared value for both the business and the community through creating societal value
  • Aim to find solutions to social problems that are scalable and self-sustainable
  • Contribute towards the prosperity of a stable democratic South Africa for all


Our social investment and performance efforts aim to minimise and mitigate the possible harmful impact on society caused by the company's operations by investing in a variety of initiatives linked to prevention and the harmful impact of alcohol abuse.

We thus invest in programmes focussing on the prevention of Feotal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), Youth Development, Job Creation and Entrepreneurship supported by Arts and Culture initiatives.
