Dreammaker Fruits’ farming operations consist of two sites, Zuurvlakte and Teeland, situated just outside of Porterville in the Western Cape region of South Africa. The majority shareholder, Stephen Taylor, is passionate about the soft fruit industry and has other berry related operations in South Africa, the UK and Poland. Dreammaker has 78 hectares of soft fruit (primarily Blueberries) planted across the two sites and has been supplying Berryworld since 2003/04, playing a pivotal role in developing the South African Blueberry industry in the early years.
Bionest was established in 1992 following a family decision to produce organic berries. Bionest operates in a privileged natural environment called Doñana inspiring them to produce organic fruit which will help sustain and preserve the beautiful neighbouring landscape. Many different varieties of wildlife, plants and animals share their extraordinary location. This is the main reason why their growing techniques and agricultural practices are extremely cautious and respectful of any impact they may have on nature. As part of our long term relationship, they have expand their production area to the warmest area of the region bringing berry production earlier, now starting at the end of September.
