ABOUT THIS REPORT BASTION TESTING
This integrated report analyses Tiger Brands' performance for the year to 30 September 2018 (review period), in the context of our external environment. It also illustrates our focus on ensuring our strategy and governance structures support our prospects for creating value over the short, medium and long term. Covering the review period, this is our primary report to all stakeholders. It should be read in conjunction with the supplementary sustainability report and annual financial statements.
In preparing our integrated and sustainability reports, we were guided by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) framework and GRI Standards, as well as recommendations in the King Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa (King IV™*).
The scope and reporting boundaries, as well as frameworks guiding content and independent assurance, are detailed in Boundary and scope.
We start with issues in the prior year, the group risk register and views of our executive committee. These are combined with issues arising from a detailed assessment of our operating environment and stakeholder engagement, and clustered into logical themes, in line with our strategy, to provide a concise view of our material matters (with detailed disclosure in our online sustainability report, where relevant).
The audit committee and board acknowledge their joint responsibility for ensuring the integrity of the integrated report. After applying our collective minds, we believe this report addresses all material matters, and offers a balanced view of Tiger Brands' strategy and how it relates to the group's ability to create value in the short, medium and long term. The report adequately addresses the use of and impact on our capitals, as well as the way in which their availability affects our strategy and business model.
