With over three decades of experience in cultivating our succulent table grapes and citrus products, Suiderland Plase has evolved from owning one citrus farm to running our operations from independent fruit farms in the Western Cape region.

By continually supplying our clients with a choice of new and exclusive varieties of hard citrus, soft citrus and table grapes, the demand for our company’s products keeps rising, enabling us to increase availability to consistently and reliably supply clients with our produce. This also confirms our company’s position as an established leader in fruit farming.
