Creating

Connection

Star South is more than just a supply chain; it’s a life cycle.

Based in Wellington, South Africa, Star South serves four key groups across the diverse sector of fresh produce: fruit producers and retailers, both within South Africa and abroad. Since inception in 2003, we’ve grown our services to cover the retail, wholesale and processing sectors – with shipments tailored to individual needs in both quality and quantity.

But Star South is more than just a supply chain; it’s a life cycle. It’s about creating connections – connecting good people with good prices and good, wholesome produce. This is why our relationships are everything; why we’ve mapped out a network of the most committed partners, to bear any load and to do so carefully. Because in an ever-changing landscape where seasons, weather patterns, crops and consumer demand can be so unpredictable, a sure means of navigation beyond the landscape offers a steady anchor.

We serve four key groups across the diverse sector of fresh produce:

Fruit producers and retailers, both within South Africa and abroad. It’s a world of good produce, good people and good prices. An extensive, vast world which we navigate via committed one-on-one relationships, to offer personalised service and tailored solutions.
