Citrus packing continues in South Africa
We’re now into the home stretch of our fantastic South African citrus season with our Valencia oranges still packing in impressive volume
Expertly handpicked citrus from our South African Farms will continue to be processed through our bespoke packing facility and will do so for the next two weeks.
We continue to harvest in good volume and availability of our fruit remains consistent. We’re pleased to be on track to achieve our biggest export season ever and have seen excellent quality throughout.
Packing at source
Using our own specialist packing lines, we pack at source and provide our fruit in a selection of varieties and sizes. Our state-of-the-art GREEFA packing line allows us to pack around 1,000 bins per day which equates to around 50 tons per hour.
Farming across the key production regions in South Africa enables us to diversify the offering for our customers and cater to the specific needs of a market globally.
