Dreem Fruit – Delecta’s Stone Fruit Producer of the Year 2019
Every year, Delecta takes pleasure in acknowledging its top producers in each fruit category. The decisions are based on the quality of fruit, accuracy of harvest estimate and innovation on varietal development by the particular producer over the season.
Leonard Droomer of Dreem Fruit was crowned our Stone Fruit Producer of the Year for 2019. Since the Droomer family purchased Rouzelle farm in the Breede River Valley thirteen years ago, they’ve introduced stone fruit and lessened their reliance on the wine grapes for which the region is famous.
Says Erietha Nel, Delecta’s Stone Fruit Category Manager: “It is a pleasure awarding a producer like Dreem fruit with Delecta’s Stone fruit producer of the year award. As exporter and producer we share the same enthusiasm for the opportunities that the fruit industry has to offer. We are excited and we look forward to the innovation and varietal development Leonard and his team at Dreem fruit are investing in.”Read more...
