Processed Foods

Due to its links to agriculture and job creation potential, South Africa’s agro-processing industry is a key sector. Canned and frozen fruit and vegetables produced in South Africa are well-known internationally, and the fruit juices are popular due to high quality, appearance and new flavours.

Sector trends like healthier processed food, organic products, halal certification; natural/functional ingredients, convenient and recyclable packaging and CSI-related trading initiatives offer excellent opportunities for compliant South African producers and exporters.
