FruitOne is a pioneer in the South African citrus cultivation and export market. As grower-exporter with its head office in Stellenbosch, FruitOne oversees and manages the production of lemons, limes, star ruby grapefruit, marsh grapefruit, valencia oranges and Tango soft citrus on a number of estates in Limpopo province.

Our group is one of the larger producers of early Tango mandarin in South Africa.

FruitOne’s history is firmly linked to people development. From the pioneering efforts of Dr Dennis Boyes at Henley in the early 1960s, to the expansion into Hoedspruit in the 1990s and the entry into joint ventures and long-term contracts in the new millennium, development has always been a key focus area.

FruitOne’s community partners have partial ownership of the farms on which they work. The company is committed to people development, offering continuous skills and management training and other community development programs. The farming division alone employs 620 permanent workers and provide up to 3 000 seasonal jobs per annum.

Quality Assurance

All our growers are fully GLOBAL GAP accredited to assure safe and sustainable fruit production that meets baseline requirements for food safety and hygiene. Audits are done by one of 140 Global Gap accredited auditing bodies. We work hands on with the growers to have continual improvement plans and structures in place for food safety and sustainability to enhance the quality of our products.

All our growers are members of SIZA (Sustainability initiative of South Africa) .

What is the SIZA programme?

The programme was established as a pro-active response by the South African fruit industry under the mantle of Fruit South Africa to promote sound and ongoing improvement of ethical labour practices on South African fruit farms and pack houses.

Traceability is one of the key factors where we contribute to food safety. It is a risk management tool which allows us to effectively recall products when needed. Every carton packed can be traced back through all stages of production, packing and distribution
