Zimbabwe’s horticultural exports amounted to US$72.1 million in 2015, according to trade promotion agency Zimtrade, a significant increase from $49 million the previous year but still about half of the country’s peak output recorded in the 1999/2000 season.The Netherlands remains the biggest single buyer of Zimbabwe’s fresh produce, accounting for $32.6 million (45 percent) of total horticulture exports, Zimtrade figures show. The European Union consumes the bulk of Zimbabwe’s exports, with the United Kingdom ($13.5 million), Germany ($5.3 million), France ($3.2 million) and Poland ($2.9 million) taking up a combined $57.5 million worth of horticultural produce.

Image is everything, some say, and wine is no exception. For the past 20 years, South Africa's Cabernets and Chardonnays have fought hard to compete with their Old World rivals, which lean upon the strong reputation of historic wine making regions such as Bordeaux and Bourgogne. But now the fight is paying off. From success in new markets such as China and the U.S. to record auction prices and high scores in blind tastings, South African wines are gaining recognition and big players are taking note. Last month the French wine giant AdVini acquired 51% of Ken Forrester Wines, a major producer in the South African wine industry -- the most recent example of a number of acquisitions over the past few years
