Preserving and Processing of Fruit and Vegetables: This report focuses on the preservation and processing of fruit and vegetables in South Africa. Part of the agro-processing sector, the industry is increasingly important to local manufacturing. It is worth over R10bn, employs around 18,000 people, purchases large quantities of fresh horticultural products and has a positive export profile. Although it has to import juice products, South Africa is a net exporter of fruit and vegetable preparations, exporting processed fruit, vegetables, pastes and juices to the value of R7.1bn in 2014.


Support and Investment: The high levels of support and investment received by the fruit and vegetable processing industry indicate the importance of the sector. Numerous small berry projects in KwaZulu-Natal and citrus growing and processing activities in Limpopo and Mpumalanga have been the recipients of Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) support. There has also been large-scale private sector investment in new technologies and facilities resulting in increased fruit and vegetable processing capacity and efficiency. Statistics indicate that excluding grapes and berries, about 1.4 million tons of fresh produce was purchased for processing in 2014. The acquisition of Boland Pulp, one of two large-scale concentrate processors in the Western Cape, by the Rhodes Food Group is only one of numerous acquisitions in the sector to date during 2015.
