A world of variety

These interventions are aimed at assisting producers to Gain, Retain and Optimise (GRO) market access.

There are five major growing regions in South Africa. The difference in soil and climate enables growers to supply the markets from November to May. The early season is dominated by varieties from the Northern Provinces and the valleys of the Orange and Olifants Rivers , followed by table grape varieties from the Berg River and Hex River regions.

SATI is funded by a grower levy, and is a co-founder and a key supporter of the Sustainability Initiative of South Africa (SIZA).

The South African table grape industry is ideally positioned to work with the government on all levels to make a significant contribution to the primary goals of the National Development Plan, namely job creation, rural development and the earning of foreign revenue.
