Freek Dreyer of ZEST Fruit recently received recognition for his work in growing South African fresh fruit exports to Russia.  He was awarded a Certificate of Merit from the Chamber of Commerce and Industries of the Russian Federation. We would like to extend our heartiest congratulations to him!

On the 31st of January in the presence of representatives of the RSA Embassy in Russia (Minister Counsellor for Economic Affairs Moloko Leshaba) and Russia-RSA Business Council, Freek Dreyer received the award. Then Freek and Moloko gave interviews to TV BRICS (a Russian television channel) speaking about the importance and details of South African citrus exports to the Russian market. South African citrus has become a constant and unchangeable part of the food menu in Russian families. In 25 years of mutual work of South Africa and Russian fruit trade companies (by the way, both sides had had no experience in foreign trade before its liberalization in the two countries in the mid-nineties) business and human relationships strengthened and created a firm basis for mutually beneficial trade.
