GOGO Packhouses

GOGO packhouses is proud to be part of EKM Exports under the GOGO Group of companies.

GOGO’s farms are located in Marble Hall and Groblersdal. This area is known as the Loskop Valley, and it offers absolutely perfect conditions for the growing of citrus, among other crops. The soil is rich and there is an ample supply of water from the nearby Loskop Dam. Together, the farms are provided with water to maintain thousands of hectares of potential citrus growing land.

It is here that we grow and nurture hundreds of thousands of citrus trees to ultimately offer up batches of beautiful Navels, Valencias, Lemons, Clementines, as well as Grapes, that are distributed to the furthest corners of the globe.

Our packhouse facility currently packs 1 500 tonnes of citrus a day.

With a state-of-the-art equipment lines and agrobotics from leading manufacturers such as MAF RODA, GOGO packhouses feature electronic sorting equipement with multiple lane-sizers, Infrared, RGB and Ultraviolet photographic fruit quality analysis as well as fruit weight & density measurement.

The first MAF RODA line was acquired in 2009 and consists of two sizers. ONe for grading fruit, and the other for packing. GOGO has since expanded these lines: In 2015 an additional presorting and packing line was added, and our latest upgrade was completed in 2020. All sizers are equipped with the latest technology from MAF RODA, where both internal and external defects can be identified and sorted according to our strict specifications.
