We've Been Shifting Lives Since 1994

Helping over 3 million people. Running a business that feels like a family. And working every day to make life better for South Africans. Did you know The Unlimited has been shifting lives for over two decades?

It all started with our founder, Iain Buchan, in 1994, who believes “A business has to focus on doing the right things instead of just chasing money”. So he put all his time into building a company that doesn’t stuff your money in it's pockets, but instead, uses it to find even better products, benefits and real rewards for you, at even better prices.

Soon, Iain’s own family joined the cause. And today, we’re a family of millions. Because together, we can all experience better.

No More Limits: A Brighter Future for 500 000 South African Children

3 050 Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres. 7 000 practitioners. And over half a million South African children across 8 provinces. We believe that no child should be limited. And we always want to give more of ourselves. That’s why, for over a decade, The Unlimited and our Unlimited Family have supported ECD Centres to help our children get a good start in life – so we can grow a more powerful, courageous and confident society that will keep driving real positive change in the future.

From supporting just 5 crèches in KwaZulu-Natal in 2008, we’ve grown to helping over 3 000 ECD Centres supporting over 500 000 children today.

And we want to grow that to 5 000 centres by 2021, so we can support millions more. And that’s what you’re part of when you join our Unlimited Family – a family that shifts lives, gives hope and always works for a better tomorrow.
