Export Councils have been established to promote
selected industry sectors. Here we focus
on theSouth Africa Fruit and Vegetable Canners Association (SAFVCA).
The SAFVCA, a key Export Council, oversees the processing of more than
600 000 tons of fresh fruit, tomatoes and vegetables annually by the association's members. These are sourced from 1 500 farms and generate sales of nearly
R5.0 billion. Members directly employ nearly 12 000 workers and 532 administrative and sales staff. Approximately 85% of canned deciduous fruit and pineapple products are exported every year. To learn more about what the SAFVCA does and what it offers its members click here
