Kakuzi farms  over 400 Hectares of avocado, producing and exporting Hass, Pinkerton and Fuerte  cultivars. The Hass season runs from June to mid-September with Fuerte and Pinkerton starting a little earlier in March/April.

Hass Avocados
Kakuzi produces the Hass variety of avocado. The temperate climate is perfectly suited to high quality avocado production and our Hass product is known for its good taste and eating quality.
Kakuzi is also continuously expanding and developing further Hass avocado outgrowers. Kakuzi currently has 110 Hectares under this initiative and further growth in production is planned in coming years.

Fuerte Avocados
Kakuzi exports is Fuerte, which is grown by Smallholders. Kakuzi buys and exports Fuerte from Smallholders. We work closely with the Smallholders to improve quality and reliability of supply.

All of our own production is GlobalGap accredited while the Avocado Packhouse is ISO 22000:2005 accredited.
Avocado Packhouse
At Kakuzi's Avocado Packhouse all avocados are graded to eliminate fruit with physical quality defects such as insect and wind damage, bruising and sunburn and the fruit is also weight sized. Fruit is packed into cartons with net weights of either 4 kg or bulk packs of 10kg. Packed fruit is then placed in cold rooms to cool in preparation for shipping in refrigerated 40ft containers. The time taken from picking and packing to reaching the European market is 30 days on average.

Macadamia Orchards
Currently 617 Hectares are planted with macadamia with expansion planned to 2016.
The plantations are immature and have yet to provide a harvest.
The macadamia project at Kakuzi is a strategic development for the Company and once production comes on-stream, this will add to the existing Camellia Groups investments in Malawi and South Africa. Collectively this will make the Camellia Group one of the largest macadamia suppliers in the world.
