We grow only plums on Mount Joy and this allows us to specialise in the production of a wide range of cultivars. We are committed to growing only the best quality fruit. We comply with strict food safety protocols and have GlobalGap and Tesco Nature’s Choice accreditations. We ensure the traceability of our packed fruit back to the orchard in which it was grown.
Our fruit is picked and handled in accordance with the best orchard practices. The fruit is packed on Mount Joy by our packing company, Banhoek Fruit Packers. At the packhouse the fruit is pre-cooled, packed, cold-stored and containerised. The packed fruit is laboratory tested to ensure that there is compliance with pesticide residue limits as stipulated by GlobalGap, Tesco Nature’s Choice and local regulations. Prior to export, the fruit is inspected by the Perishable Products Export Control Board (PPECB) to ensure that the export quality standards are met.
