What fresh produce get exported from UK to South Africa?


We are doing research and development in the packaging industry. (We are not a big company, we are university friends, interested in this operation.) We developed a plastic pallet with active RFID tags. We measure temperature. We would like to create closed loops and re-use the pallets, renting them at the same price as people pay for wooden pallets today.

We are now sending 365 pallets with fresh fruit from South Africa to Chingford in the UK.

We would like to find something in the UK that we can put on the pallets and bring back to South Africa.

What fresh produce gets exported from UK to South Africa?

Who could we speak to for more information?



I would advise you to contact the South African Chamber of Commerce in the UK who may be able to put you in contact with some of their members:


I hope this helps.
