South African organic stone fruit season started at OTC-Canada

OTC-Canada, the recently established subsidiary of OTC-Holland, has officially opens its doors with the start of the South African organic stone fruit season. The first air freight peaches and nectarines are of very good quality. Regular supplier Pro Plum Orchards is the only grower in South Africa who cultivates organic stone fruit. Due to the favourable growing season and good soil condition, Pro Plum Orchards expects a good stone fruit season. To ensure the continuity the stone fruit is grown under hail nets.

Pro Plum Orchards
Pro Plum Orchards, a family business with 160 acres of organic stone fruit growing area, is located in the Limpopo Highlands. After harvesting, the products are stored in a fully equipped state of the art warehouse. The products are transported to O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg using refrigerated transport. From there the cooled products are flown to Canada.

Complete range
Besides peaches and nectarines we also offer nectarcots, apricots, yellow and red plums. Early December OTC-Holland expects to launch the South African stone fruit campaign in Europe. The products are packed under their, specially for OTC-Canada designed, purple house label MmmBio.

Ambition OTC-Canada
The recently opened office in Woodbridge, Toronto, will be OTC’s import and service provider on the North American market for flavourful fresh organic produce with a guaranteed organic integrity. Key products include stone fruit, citrus and grapes from South Africa, as well as a range of other produce from Latin America and Europe.
