TopFruit was founded in 1983 by three nurserymen, Dr. Jim Button, Richard Hill, and Roy Jeffery, with the aim to more efficiently import, test, and commercialise new fruit varieties in Southern Africa.

As the TopFruit team, we share the bond of a love for the land and the business of farming for our future. Our years of experience, personal understanding of the agricultural environment, and the respect we have earned within the industry make us international leaders in cultivar management.

We represent Pome Fruit, Stone Fruit, Table Grape, Berry, and Kiwifruit varieties from breeders the world over. Our team ensures the sustainability of new varieties by selecting only the best quality plant material that are minimally invasive to the environment and that represent the future of farming. Our focus is to discover and unlock the potential of these varieties through a well-established intellectual property management program. Quality is the cornerstone of our business. We work hard to ensure that we monitor quality every step of the way, from bud to bowl.

As a team, we are passionate about what we do and are committed to growing long-lasting relationships with all our partners. Contact our experienced team.

TopFruit can assist you by effectively and efficiently optimising the success of your business.
