Fruit Farming was established in 2005 and specialises in the production of soft citrus fruit.
Fruit Farming owns and manages citrus orchards in the following regions:
- Letsitele in the Limpopo province;
- Burgersfort valley, on the border between the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces;
- Nelspruit in Mpumalanga; and
- Heidelberg and Swellendam in the Southern Cape.
Geographical diversification allows for the extension of the fruit packing season and further provides for reduced risk exposure of the orchards as a whole to area specific climatic events.
Naranja Packers is a specialised citrus pack house in the Burgersfort valley, suitably equipped for the sorting and packing of soft citrus fruit. This pack house packs all fruit produced by Indigo Fruit Farming in the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces, as well as fruit for other farmers within the Burgersfort region.
To make provision for fruit from the Southern Cape, the group has a joint shareholding in Swellenfruit Packers, a specialised citrus pack house in Swellendam that is also equipped for the sorting and packing of soft citrus fruit.
