Would you like to learn more about Jupiter Group’s South African citrus farms?

On the latest episode of The Pod, Kobus, our Head of Farming SA joined our Procurement Manager Thinus to discuss the start of our South African citrus season and the vital role that our own farms play each year.

Farming in SA

As our resident expert in SA farming matters, we were delighted to see Kobus join us on the latest Pod. Kobus spoke candidly to Thinus about the challenges of farming in the area but also confirmed the many fantastic qualities of South Africa as a growing region.

Our 740 hectares of delicious citrus benefit from unique positioning in the northerly province of Limpopo, meaning that we are affected by fewer pests and welcome earlier fruit than other growers in the country.
