Ceres – Nature’s Perfect Juice.
From growing to squeezing
Ceres Fruit Juices were first established in 1923 under the name “Ceres Fruit Growers”. Ceres is South Africa’s leading fruit juice company and has grown into one of the largest fruit packaging operations in the world. In 1986 we established the Ceres Fruit Juices Company with the merger of Liqui-Fruit and Fruitree with Ceres. Since then, our company has grown from strength to strength and has won many prestigious food and beverage awards both locally and internationally.

Mother Nature provides the perfect conditions in Ceres to grow the perfect fruit.
Tucked under a blanket of soft, white snow, the cold winters ensure that the trees enter a deep hibernation, getting the rest that’s needed to bear such delicious produce.
Ceres awakens in spring and this season brings the entire valley to life, with birds soaring above the trees and butterflies dancing through the orchards.
Ample winter rains make it a wonderful fruit growing area and the snow during winter keeps temperatures low, while fruit trees are in their rest period.
Due to Ceres’s inland location, the summer season reaches some of the warmest temperatures in the Western Cape and the heat helps ripen and sweeten the fruit, making it perfect for juice.
