We Grow

We Grow and RipenWestfalia Fruit operates various avocado estates located on different continents. In South Africa, farms situated in the Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal provinces include Westfalia, Macnoon, Agrivet, Goedgelegen and Everdon. Orchards are currently being established on Zembe Farm in Mozambique, while the Group also has farming assets in Colombia ​in South America.


​​​​​​​We Grow and Ripen​ ​The geographical spread of operations provides Westfalia with the ability to stretch its production season over a longer period of time – an important factor in the supply of fruit for 12 months of the year. Growing fruit in different areas also minimises climatic risks.


Farming at Westfalia Fruit is undertaken using the most modern and sustainable horticultural practices and involves orchard management, pest and disease control, the most suitable rootstocks and cultivars, and post-harvest fruit-management procedures. The farms​ are fully compliant with the applicable local and international certification schemes.


Westfalia’s orchard-management approach is fully compliant with Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), which ensures safe farming for the consumer, employees, community ​and the environment – making us better neighbours.
Good-quality clonal ​rootstock avocado trees for the orchards are supplied by​ the world-renowned Westfalia Nursery, which carries full accreditation.


Westfalia Farming

Orchard sprayingFarming at Westfalia Fruit is undertaken using the most modern and sustainable horticultural practices and includes orchard management, pest and disease control, the most suitable rootstocks​ and cultivars and post-harvest fruit-management procedures.


The Westfalia Nursery is fully accredited and world renowned for the provision of good-quality clonal rootstock avocado trees.


Both organic and conventional orchards are managed according to world-class best practice. Many orchard techniques used internationally were developed in Westfalia orchards and the use of leading technology has resulted in the ability to supply world-class quality fruit. Westfalia has a progressive outlook when it comes to food safety, environmental sustainability and social responsibility; all our farms and packhouses are fully certified in all the relevant certification schemes.

 
Westfalia manufactures its own compost primarily from orchard cuttings, organic waste from fruit processing, and timber waste generated by sister company Merensky Timber​. This is a key element of Westfalia's environmental management programme, and contributes greatly to its successful organic fruit productio​n.

We Ripen

We RipenThe Westfalia Fruit Group specialises in the ripening of fruit to meet customer requirements. Sophistic​ated ripening facilities at its operations in Europe ensure that key retail customers can provide ready-to-eat avocados to consumers year-round.

  

Leveraging its specialist expertise in the ripening process, Westfalia established a ripening unit in the Netherlands to serve Northern European markets, in parallel with its ripening facilities in France and the UK. Launched in December 2013, the new Euro-West ripening facility for avocados and ​mangoes is based at Poeldijk and is run as a joint-venture between Euro-West and Westfalia Marketing BV. The facility features a range of standard ripening rooms as well as a specialty ripening room, which comprises three sections that each accommodates eight pallets.


 

The key benefit of this design is that temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide content as well as air speed and ethylene addition can be independently adjusted and controlled for each section, to suit the requirements of the fruit in each set of pallets. This creates a considerable competitive advantage, putting the collaborative partners in a leading position with regards to the ripening of both avocados and mangoes.
