Our main focus is the export of citrus products, while pome fruit and grapes make up the remainder of our product basket. All fruit types are sourced throughout Southern Africa and exported to markets in Russia, Japan, Europe, Canada, the Far East, Middle East and UK.

Zest Fruit’s strength lies in tailoring supply to meet individual buyer requirements – from packaging formats to specific quality standards. Thus we apply out-of-the-box thinking to match our customers’ needs with those of our producers and vice versa.
