Funding & Disbursements

Under the Regulations, AAFCANS is to conduct its operations on a commercial and self‑supporting basis, with the aim of providing savings sufficient to permit distribution of surplus funds for the benefit of the members of the Army, the Air Force and their families.

In accordance with a Ministerial directive AAFCANS now reinvests cash surpluses into remodelling and refurbishing canteen facilities, improving products and services and keeping retail selling prices as low as possible.

During the year $545,185 was accrued or paid to SADFOs or base welfare funds under contracts negotiated by AAFCANS for vending on base.

Coffee loyalty returned more than 105,000 free coffees at a retail value of over $386,000 to our customers.
