The Dates Story
Dates have become increasingly popular all over the world. The desert climate and abundant water from the Orange river district where it is produced, ensure only the best premium quality dates.
Star South is one of only a handful of fresh and dried exporters in Southern Africa, and the first in the Southern Hemisphere market with fresh, yellow Barhi dates at the end of January. We fly these fresh yellow dates all over the globe during its limited 8-week window. In March we start supplying the dried Medjool, Zamli, Khalas & Barhi varieties, shipping them at minus 18 degrees Celsius. Thanks to our sub-zero storage we can stretch the season to last until October.
Dates are one of the superfoods, and an excellent source of fibre, iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. They also contain carbohydrates which will aid the body in maintaining health. Dates are rich in calories, making them a great energy source. Sweet in taste, dates are also a good alternative to refined sugars.
