Positively Impacting the Environment
The business relies heavily on natural resources and it is imperative to the nature of the operation that the utmost care is taken when impacting the environment. Initiatives across the entire company have been implemented to manage energy and resource solutions.
A tree-first culture is being adopted by Letaba Estates and relies on a more tailor made approach to tree health by assessing individual orchards and cultivar requirements. This approach has delivered invaluable learnings and forms the base of a continued environmentally friendly farming.
In addition, a successful Biotherm project is underway at Letaba Citrus Processors that effectively uses saw dust in the manufacturing process and decreases the factory’s carbon footprint.
