The FVC International Story

Fruit & Veg International was established by Jaco van Tubbergh, MD of FVC International in 2004.

We are wholly owned by Food Lovers Market and takes care of all imports and exports within the group.

Our vision at FVC International is to be the best import and export company in Southern Africa, offering a complete hands-on facility, and ensuring that our products are grown, picked and packed in perfect condition. We export a wide variety of fresh produce according to seasonal availability.

All our fruit is picked on GlobalGAP certified farms to ensure that safe, sustainable farming practices have been adhered to. Over the years, we have established solid relationships with our farmers, who have extensive knowledge and experience in growing and harvesting fresh produce for export.

From the farms, the fruit is transported to our HACCP accredited packing facilities where it is carefully sorted and packed into cartons according to PPECB export standards.
It is then transported to certified cold rooms at our terminals, which are all located within minutes of the country’s major ports.


FVC International also has its own logistics company in partnership with two of the largest producers in South Africa, which ensures that orders reach their destination in the shortest possible time.

Together we ship more than 12500 containers each year and export to more than 35 countries worldwide.

FVC International is also the largest importer of fresh produce into South Africa, as well as the fastest growing exporter.
