South Africa’s grapefruit production is set to increase by 5% to 370,000 tons in 2017/18, due to increase in planted area.

Cameroon’s leading banana producer Plantations du Haut-Penja (PHP), the Cameroonian subsidiary of Compagnie Fruitière, has reported a turnover for 2017 of €110 million.

The South African Table Grape Industry (SATI) has announced estimates for the season in progress of between 12.2% and 18% lower than the 2016/2017 season.

South Africa is the Southern Hemisphere’s fourth biggest apple producer and ranks second for pears.

With about 79,803 ha last year, deciduous fruit is the largest sub-sector for all land dedicated to fruit plantations in South Africa.
