South Africa’s top exports include the usual candidates of gold, iron, and precious metals. However, a surprising addition contributes a staggering $3.7 billion annually among the industrial products. It’s our fruits and nuts. Our South African produce is distributed globally with apples being sent to the UK, grapes and avocados to the Netherlands, oranges to South East Asia, lemons and pears to Russia among much more.

Besides feeding the world with our superior quality produce, our growing population is ever in need of more and more nutritional food and the need for local produce has never been greater. The agricultural industry in South Africa only has room for growth. From livestock to cereals, we have the capacity to support all manner of food production.
