Italian job ahead for Fruit South Africa

Industry group Fruit South Africa has entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Associazione Italiana Commercio Estero (AICE) to promote mutual trade and investment opportunities between the two countries’ fresh fruit sectors. In a release, Fruit South Africa highlighted AICE was a non-profit entrepreneurial association, established in Milan, with more than 70 years’ experience working to promote business relations between Italy and the rest of the world. AICE represents Italian companies that are predominantly committed to commercial activities abroad such as: trading, export, import, countertrade, buying-offices, export management as well as services activities related to small and medium enterprises. More than 50% of all agricultural exports from South Africa are fresh fruit, and major export destinations include the EU, U.K., Far East, Russia, Middle East, the U.S. and Canada. The fruit industry contributes significantly to the South African economy with an annual turnover of more than ZAR30 billion (US$2 billion) composed of exports, national sales of fresh produce, fruit supplied for processing and fruit supplied for drying.
