South Africa’s fruit industry contributes 52% of South Africa’s overall agriculture export basket. However, many local issues affect the international competitiveness of South Africa’s ability to become the chief drivers in export-led growth.
[Watch] NuWater engineer JP Lombard gives us a breakdown of how NuWater typically approaches the treatment of product water in a packhouse.
While South Africa’s supply routes are “business as usual”, the biggest challenge for fruit exporters is complying with contaminant standards and showing that processed produce poses zero risks to importing countries.
South Africa is a water-stressed country and ensuring sustainable growth in export requires adopting and adapting to advances in smart wastewater technology and expertise.
NuWater understands that each type of food processing waste has unique factors to consider and that small to medium exporters face water challenges that exclude them from export markets. With the health of SA’s fruit and nut export sector depending on smart technology and wastewater practices, NuWater combine our own patented RO technology and global experience to bring pack-houses and exporters water-smart technologies that better operations, and reduce contamination risks and operational costs.
