PRODUCTS

Members of SAFJA produce and market a wide range of fruit based beverages ranging from 100% fruit juice or fruit juice blends to drinks. Strict regulations govern the classification of the various products. The latest amendment of the latter came into effect on 14 June 2014. The permitted classes of products have been reduced by eliminating the Sweetened Fruit Juice category.
