Laastedrif Edms Bpk
At Laastedrif, we produce fruit and vegetables of outstanding quality all year round. We take great pride in accomplishing this by caring for our product, our environment and our people. Laastedrif has its headquarters high up against the Matroosberg mountain in the fertile Ceres valley in the Western Cape. It is owned by the Cilliés, pioneers in the South African fruit industry for four generations. Under the leadership of Rossouw Cillié, the family is building on this heritage and currently the group consists of six farms located in a 220 km radius. Varying climatic conditions allow us to deliver a wide range of quality produce 12 months of the year to an ever-growing local and international customer base. We produce stone and pome fruit, a wide selection of vegetables, onion plants and seeds. A sheep stud rounds out our product offering. We’re proud suppliers to customers such as Woolworths, Freshmark and a wide range of international supermarkets through our preferred marketing agents. Quality is non-negotiable and we ensure this through sustainable practices. Accreditations include GlobalGAP, TESCO Nurture, Field to fork, Woolworths Farming for the future and the BRC Global Food Safety Standard.
