Our deciduous operations are located in Elgin, Grabouw and Villiersdorp region of the Western Cape.
The deciduous division consists of four farms, Ouwerf, Vyeboom, Dennebos and Belleview (Bellcro Farming), all located in the EGV (Elgin-Grabouw-Villiersdorp) region of the Western Cape. In total there are approximately 461 ha of apple and pear orchards on these farms. The division manages 43 ha of deciduous orchards on behalf of Bellcro on the farm Belleview leased from the government. Bellcro is a partnership between CBL and ex-employees.
The group’s production is marketed through the Two-A-Day group (TAD), which is owned by its grower suppliers. TAD essentially operates as a co-operative, distributing income to shareholders via rebates on packing and marketing.
TAD is a 50% shareholder in Tru-Cape (with Ceres Fruit Growers), which markets the TAD production.
