The South African fruit industry is committed to supporting its workers and their families. For every farm worker there are, on average, four dependents that rely on the fruit industry to provide education, housing, health and social care, and this competition is yet another way the industry is helping its employees.
Making a difference with Fruit
Your purchase makes a difference
By buying South African fruit you are helping to create jobs, support families and develop the country!
- One hectare of fruit planted creates approximately one full-time job

- South African fruit is counter-seasonal, so is available when European produce isn’t, which means we’re lucky enough to enjoy beautiful sunshine fruit all year round.
