Understanding what we are part of!
In the most recent season the Citrus Growers of Southern Africa have exported around 2 million tonnes of citrus to many destinations around the world.
Our two companies support this with our products and services and can be very proud to be part of this achievement.
How much is 2 million tonnes of Citrus though?? It is hard to imagine.
To illustrate this amount of Citrus lets explore some perspective to the volume.
The two million tonnes of citrus relates to 9.6 billion pieces of fruit.
If these 9.6 billion pieces of fruit were placed on the ground shoulder to shoulder, it would cover an area the equivalent of over 7 500 football fields.
If the 133 million cartons were stacked on top of each other, it would reach a height of 36 000 Km, equivalent to over 4 000 Mount Everest’s stacked on top of each other.
If this fruit were strung out in a single line, shoulder to shoulder, it would cover a distance of 720 000 Km
– which would circle the earth almost 18 times, or – reach the moon and back almost twice.
If the 133 million cartons were packed on the ground next to each other it would cover an area of 16 square kilometres
– 3 times the size of Robben Island, – 8 times the size of the Principality of Monaco and – be the third smallest country in the world by land mass.
