In 2008 the South African fruit industry took a decision to respond to the need to provide retailers and their consumers with assurances of fair labour practices in their supply base, by supporting the development of a single South African based ethical standard and programme that would meet all retailer requirements.

The ethical trade programme has been formalized in 2016 as the Sustainability Initiative of South Africa (SIZA), a not-for-profit membership based free standing organization which will be the custodian of an ethical and environmental standard and who will oversee the ethical trade and environmental initiatives for not only fruit anymore, but agriculture in South Africa. SIZA is open to producers, exporters, importers, retailers and other stakeholders across the supply chain.Continue reading →
