Tesco has been named as the South African fruit industry’s Stone Fruit Retailer of the Year for its performance during the 2016/2017 stone fruit season.

The supermarket achieved a record season in both peaches and nectarines, and strong figures in plums and worked with Hortgro to implement promotional activities for consumers and its own staff. Hortgro is the association that represents South African stone fruit and top fruit growers and gives the award to one UK retailer every year based on support and performance during the season. Presenting the award at the retailer’s head office last month, Jacques du Preez, General Manager Trade & Markets at Hortgro, said: “South African growers are awarding the title of Stone Fruit Retailer of the Year to Tesco for its ongoing support to the stone fruit category and another superb performance during the SA season. This is the third time Tesco has won this award, which is not surprising given its continual focus on achieving excellence in stone fruit.”
