Founded in 1997, EXSA is a dynamic table grape grower company.
We are in control of all aspects, from growing to delivering to the final customer. We pride ourselves in the quality of fruit we grow and in the way we do it.
By being the leaders in sustainable practices and investing in new varieties and packing innovation we make sure that EXSA and its next generation of growers will keep on producing the best quality fruit. With our small staff structure and constant synergy between growing and marketing we follow a market driven growing approach and flexibility to the demand of our customers.
Our main strengths include:
COMPOSTABLE AND BIODEGRADABLE PACKAGING
As part of our sustainability initiatives, Exsa has taken the initiative to introduce compostable inner packaging to our grapes packaging for exports. We have conducted successful trials that to replace the traditional single-use petroleum based plastic carton inner liners and carry bags with compostable alternatives and we plan to extend this initiative in the future.
This use of compostable inner packaging is the first of its kind in the South African table grape sector. We have undertaken this in collaboration with Superior Packaging, a local south African packaging company.
Exsa was established in 1997 at the time of the deregulation of the South African fruit industry when several table grape growers pooled their fruit and resources to export their own grapes. Since then, Exsa has remained a producer driven table grape grouping and has grown from strength to strength.
