Fruit exporters get state of the art cooling facility
The month of June saw the commissioning and opening for business of SAFT (Southern African Fruit Terminals) a subsidiary of the Belgium owned SEA-invest Group.
The 5 500 pallet capacity facility occupies 17 105m2 under roof on one section of a 70 120m2 site in Abland’s rapidly developing Atlantic Hills Business Park, situated on the Potsdam interchange giving direct access onto the M12 and M13 and immediate access onto the N7. The remaining portion of the site is for future expansion.
“This location provides easy access to Cape Town Harbour and our other facilities in Killarney Gardens and Paarl, but most importantly for farmers and co-ops transporting fruit for export. The fruit destined for export is directed to the Atlantic Hills facility from all parts of the country, not just the immediate locations in the Western Cape” explained managing director Ockert Henning.
