Global Challenger

Bidvest is one of only five South African companies included on the Boston Consulting Group’s “Global Challenger” list. Global Challengers are described as companies in emerging markets which are reshaping industries and challenging traditional multinational companies.

In the past five years, these companies have created 1,4 million jobs and are spending USD1,7 trillion a year in fuel growth and creating enormous opportunities. BCG says that the global challengers will play an important role in shaping the world economy over the next 10 years.
