SA fruit sector welcomes appointment of Culdevco’s new General Manager

Mishkaat Anderson has been appointed as Culdevco’s new General Manager in Fleurbaix, Stellenbosch. Anderson follows in the footsteps of Dr Leon von Mollendorff, who retired from Culdevco after 16 years. Von Mollendorff founded the company in 2006 and has left behind a strong legacy in the SA fruit sector, plus a highly competent team for Anderson to steer.

Culdevco’s main objective is to identify, market and commercialise profitable Agricultural Research Council (ARC) bred varieties for the South African deciduous fruit producers and Culdevco licensees abroad.

Since 2006, Culdevco and the ARC have an exclusive deciduous fruit license agreement to market and commercialise most of their apple, pear, plum, peach, apricot, table grape and dried grapes in South Africa, and in other specific countries of the world. All ARC deciduous fruit varieties were bred in South Africa. Currently, Culdevco is working on the evaluation of several unique and exciting deciduous fruit varieties that will be commercialised within the next five years.
