Afrex South Africa grows its global baby veg & edible flower footprint

Afrex South Africa, supplier of more than forty varieties of unique and niche baby vegetables, edible flowers and leaves, will be exhibiting their products at the Asia Fruit Logistica trade show in Hong Kong from 4 to 6 September 2019. The event takes place at the Asia World Expo, Lantau in Hong Kong.

John Kowarsky and Etienne Taitz, owners of Afrex South Africa, believe in the growth potential of markets in the Far East, which are already very important markets for the company.

“We will therefore be displaying our full range of baby and micro vegetables, herbs, our edible flowers and leaves at the exhibition,” says John. He notes that the ‘edible flower’ product line is showing strong growth for the company, and Afrex South Africa will be expanding their range of edible flowers while adapting it to markets in the Far East.

Afrex has been exporting perishable products from South Africa since 2003, sourced from contract growers spread over different climatic areas to manage risk and ensure continuous supply. Afrex is also investing in production units in order to assist their growers. Apart from the Far East, they supply clients in Europe and the UK, the Gulf States and Russia.

They have offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town, with packing facilities close to the airports to ensure that perishable products are flown out within six to eight hours, but always within a day. 

Because their products are very sensitive, they have developed systems to maintain the cool chain, thus enabling them to deliver a high-quality product to clients around the world.

“We look forward to supplying new markets and to meet the challenges of adapting our products to these new markets in the Far East,” John concludes.
