A leading South African Plum Producer
From exceptional orchards to exceptional plums
A commitment to the very best quality fruit
Exemplary farm management practices
Mount Joy is one of South Africa's leading plum producers. We lay strict emphasis on food safety. Our philosophy is to implement, wherever possible, environmentally-friendly farming practices. This includes the monitoring of our carbon footprint, which compares well with industry standards.
Because we live in a world of scarce resources, every effort is made to use these as effectively as possible through the adoption of the best agricultural practices. These practices include all aspects of farming from soil management, water conservation and crop protection to worker health, safety and welfare.
We recognise that our workforce is our most important asset. We support the initiatives of organised agriculture to achieve transformation in the agricultural labour sector and we subscribe to a code of conduct regarding fair employment practices. We have implemented steps to give practical effect to our commitment for the transformation of workers' rights with regard to housing and community initiatives such as education of workers and their children.
