Phase two of BuyLocal campaign starts

EThekwini Municipality is excited to announce that applications for phase two of the #BuyLocal campaign will open on 23 September.
Following the success of the first phase of the campaign which was launched in September last year, phase two is expected to draw a wider variety of uniquely Durban businesses.


 The main emphasis of phase one of the campaign was to profile uniquely Durban businesses as part of the City’s Economic Recovery Plan (ERP). The plan aims to rebuild and revitalise economic activity among the City’s most vulnerable. It also helped to rebuild small to medium businesses impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and national lockdown.


The 14 uniquely Durban businesses that met the qualifying criteria in phase one were announced at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre on 25 June. At the event, the selected businesses had the opportunity to profile their companies and exhibit their products. A workshop for the business owners on supplier chain processes and opportunities available for small, medium, and micro enterprises was held. One of the businesses was selected to participate in a training course in enterprise development through a City partnership with Regent Business School.


The City, through the Economic Development Unit, is spearheading the campaign.
Phase two of the #BuyLocal campaign is another opportunity for uniquely Durban businesses to submit their applications online from 23 September to 23 October. This phase is expected to increase the number of businesses inducted. The campaign will also assist businesses with marketing for them to stand out and attract customers while strengthening the local economy within communities.


Phase two rollout:
 Call for registrations opens from 23 September to 23 October. Visit www.durban.gov.za for more information.
 Shortlisting, verification, and approval processes will be completed in November.
 Phase 2 programme launch will be in December.
 The Buy Local Campaign Programme implementation will be held from December to June 2022.
