Hugh Lanion Hall established the HL Hall & Sons (Halls) fresh produce business back in 1890. By the 1940s, Halls had developed a distinguished reputation for the farming, production, packaging and delivery of fresh produce.
The company also became well known for donating a considerable amount of produce and goods to schools, clinics and housing in South Africa.
Today, located on the outskirts of Nelspruit in Mpumalanga, Halls Fresh Produce is recognised as one of the largest subtropical producers with operations of approximately 7 000 ha of owned and leased agricultural land; 1 200 ha of irrigated and managed orchards and with packing and warehousing facilities across Nelspruit, Kiepersoland Tzaneen.
Halls uses this agricultural land to facilitate the production, growth and harvesting of all kinds of fresh produce including but not limited to: avocado, mango, citrus, litchi and pecans.
Although Halls boast a large resume of fresh produce, the company has also employed an experienced procurement team that serves to source a high quality and an extended range of fresh produce through sustainable farming practices.
Halls Fresh Produce is still as passionate about growing and caring for its produce as it was over 125 years ago. The company remains completely family-owned with community initiatives and sustainable farming practices that have been ingrained in the company’s DNA since the beginning.
