Samsui: Social Return on Investment
Samsui Supplies & Services Private Limited provided 1.8 million meals annually to long-term care facilities in Singapore through the company's flagship project, Samsui Central Kitchen. The company had won accolades for its work, and in April 2018, the director felt that the time was right to expand the project. He wondered, however, how he would illustrate to the organization's key stakeholders the social impact Samsui was having in the SG$89 million market of providing meals for long-term care facilities. To gain support for scaling up Samsui's initiatives and maximizing the social impact the company was delivering, the director needed to quantify the impact of the company's corporate social responsibility initiatives in a clear and simple message to its various stakeholders.
