At TopFruit, we are committed to acting as a socially responsible company in our global community. We will continually evaluate our business practices using the principle of sustainability. At the heart of sustainability lies the desire to maintain a balance between the economic, environmental and social needs of our world today without compromising the opportunities of future generations. We want TopFruit to always be associated with environmentally sound business practices, for our own organization and those with whom we partner.
To this end we have highlighted four specific projects.
Green Earth: TopFruit is focused on sourcing varieties that are easier to grow, require less chemicals and therefore reducing our impact on the environment. We encourage sustainable and low impact growing and production techniques to ensure our role in preserving our earth.
Carbon Footprint: Traditionally fruit has been exported using aircraft to transport it to foreign market places. TopFruit is piloting storage trials aimed at reducing our dependence on air transport and thereby enabling the use of sea transport for fruit exports and therefore reducing our carbon footprint.
Technical Guidance: All technical guidance and advice from TopFruit is directed at finding ways to reduce reliance on spraying of chemicals on trees and vines as well as natural fertilization programs.
Trees for our community: TopFruit focuses on local efforts, by planting trees on our property and in our local communities in order to not only assist the environment but also to beautify our area.
