Mouton Citrus is located in Citrusdal, Western Cape, South Africa. The Mouton family established Mouton Citrus as one of South Africa’s leading grower-exporters of quality citrus and rooibos tea (www.carmientea.co.za). Subsequent to partnering with UNIVEG in April 2001, this successful partnership of national, international and empowerment stakeholders has been growing profitably through
the acquisition of farms, development of new generation orchards, the application of best practice and technology and an innovative marketing strategy. Farming operations on a number of farms extend
all along the Elephants River and Cederberg Mountains where the Mediterranean climate is ideal for the production of novel varieties and high quality citrus.
