November 2018: Between June and October Dippenaar Choice Fruit was audited by SiZA, the Sustainability Initiative of South Africa. We are proud to announce that all our production units achieved platinum status for this comprehensive and prestigious benchmarking audit! As a result of this excellent achievement, our next audit will only be required in three year’s time.
SIZA, the Sustainability Initiative of South Africa, provides a platform for agricultural stakeholders to ensure ethical and environmentally sustainable trade. This platform monitors care for the environment and compliance with labour legislation. SiZA aims to encourage continuous improvement in practices over time in excess of the minimum legal requirements and they engage directly with our stakeholders throughout the value chain in order to identify needs and issues.
Dippenaar Choice Fruit is proud to be associated with the principles of this proactive South African ethical initiative.
