Processed Foods

South Africa’s agro-processing sector is a key sector for its potential to spur economic growth and create sustainable employment, largely because of its strong backward linkage with the primary agriculture sector. Canned and frozen fruit and vegetables produced in South Africa are well-known internationally and indigenous Rooibos and Honey bush tea, as well as fruit and vegetable juices, are highly sought after in export markets.

SIPPO supports its BSO partners’ export promotion strategies and provides guidance and support for the preparation of their export-ready companies for participation in the right trade promotion activities and markets for their processed food products.
