The Launch of The Goede Hoop Citrus (Pty) Ltd "Big" Project
At a function held on Tuesday, 4 June 2013, at Piekenierskloof Mountain Resort Goede Hoop’s BIG project was announced. BIG is the acronym for “BELê IN GROEI” – meaning Invest in Growth in English.
By means of this exciting initiative Goede Hoop aims to enable growers to expand their current selection of citrus orchards to include new cultivars to fit specific marketing requirements.
Gabrie van Eeden, Managing Director of Goede Hoop Citrus, gave a thorough explanation of what the project entailed. He urged the audience to take a strategic view in respect of what to plant. Matters such as population growth, market and user behaviour, user preferences, marketing opportunities, ripeness periods, etc, are of utmost importance he stressed.
On the basis of research done certain cultivars should definitely be favoured, he said. Amongst these are Winola, Nadorcott, Tango, Orrie and a few others. He also mentioned that there are challenges with regards to the marketing rights of the fruit but that he is optimistic that this will be sorted out soon as discussions in this regard have already made good progress.
After the presentation Gabrie was inundated with questions from a very enthusiastic audience. Judged on that and the buzz that filled the room afterwards it can be safely assumed that the news of this project was well accepted. Those present commended the company, management and the board for the ongoing strategic viewpoint they adopt saying that Goede Hoop once again established itself as the preferred packer and marketer of citrus.

“Sustainability Initiative of South Africa” (SIZA)
Die program is die gevolg van 'n pro-aktiewe reaksie deur die vrugtebedryf om gesonde etiese arbeidspraktyke op Suid-Afrikaanse vrugte plase en pakhuise te bevorder. Dit is 'n holistiese program wat probleme wat daar mag wees identifiseer, hetsy by wyse van 'n oudit proses of algemene bewustheid, en reageer met toepaslike ondersteuning en intervensies, insluitend bewusmaking rondom die wet en die toepassing daarvan, asook die aanbieding van toepaslike kapasiteitsbou-programme.
Etiese handel bied 'n versekering aan eind-verbruikers dat die werksomstandighede van al die rolspelers in die ketting aan aanvaarbare internasionale standaarde voldoen. Produsente en ander rolspelers verbind hul tot etiese handel deur middel van die aanvaarding van 'n kode m.b.t. arbeidspraktyke.
