The stone fruit is exported by Stems Fruit (Pty) Ltd and the vegetables by Goosen Fresh Produce (Pty) Ltd and Coveg (Pty) Ltd. The local stone fruit and vegetables are marketed by Goosen Fresh Produce (Pty) Ltd under the Goosen and Denou brands.

Pome Fruit is packed by Ceres Fruit Growers and marketed by Tru Cape. Wine grapes which are produced at Ou Stasie Farm are delivered to and marketed by Mountain Ridge Wines.

Varieties are chosen for qualities such as excellent & rich flavours, firm, crispy and juicy fruit..

Not only must they have excellent eating qualities but also have attractive colouring, shape and shelf life. We value versatility in our fruit such as being able to be consumed while crunchy but also to be enjoyed at maturity and, while it could be delicious right off the tree, it could also be used in desserts and preserves.

It is very important to be able to supply a fruit basket with consistently superior fruit throughout the entire season.
