2020 Juice Conference Invitation

As you will recall, we held a very successful Fruit Juice Conference in 2018 and there was overwhelming support for a repeat in 2020.We are therefore happy to announce that in 2020, the IFU will hold its regional Juice Conference in Stellenbosch in partnership with SAFJA.

The IFU Juice Conference is the event for the juice community in South Africa, truly organised by the industry – for the industry. The presentations will cover topics such as the Dynamics of the global and African juice markets; Supply chain dynamics; Quality and technology; Health and nutrition; as well as Sustainability. We expect 200 to 300 participants, including from senior, commercial and technical management; suppliers and service providers; and marketeers from overseas and South Africa.


Spier Wine Farm and Conference Hotel is one of South Africa’s oldest farms with a recorded history dating back to 1692.
