The negative impact of poverty on development and security in South Africa has been exacerbated by high food prices. However, high for prices have also had a positive effect in that it galvanized civil society into coalescing and finally playing an activist role. Looking at the development of corporate social responsibility and how it was shaped by external influences exerted on it by society, the thesis argues that high food prices might be one of those triggers that might change the implementation of corporate social responsibility from that as in business tool to one that is more developmental in its intent.
