The Yukon Group produces a range of speciality vegetables and microgreens in South Africa, including many lines of year-round baby veg. We love the latest trend of premium micro-products, and our Yukon Micro Range is a happy match with our skills in precision farming and delicate processing techniques. Our range of exotic mushrooms is another great addition to our offering and we are excited to be able to offer such a high quality product, produced and packed in South Africa.
Founded in 1991, today we are fully vertically integrated, and grow almost all our products ourselves on Yukon Farms. Each of our four farming operations in South Africa is unique geographically, ensuring year-round supply and a maximum lead time of only 3 days from field to flight.
We also have partnerships with top producers in other African countries to complement our South African farms. In our Out of Afrika brand, we offer a truly African range of specialised vegetables.
Yukon International Pty Ltd is the export arm of our group. We ship fresh baby veg and microgreens daily from our airport depots at Cape Town International and Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo. Yukon International manages this global distribution, providing the link between growers and customers, ensuring a hands-on approach to the areas of procurement, planning and forecasting. Customer service and product development are two of our top priorities.
Our airport teams give us continuous quality monitoring and the flexibility to do mixed loads and just-in-time labelling. Working closely with our team at Yukon International, these teams ensure logistical efficiency and accuracy.
All of our products are harvested by hand every day. With only 3 days from field to arrival we ensure the freshest product possible on shelf.
We pride ourselves in growing 90% of the products we export on our own Yukon Farms. Our grower partnerships mean that we can utilise a wide array of growing regions across South Africa, offsetting risk and widening our ever-expanding product portfolio.
YUKON FARM TSHAKHUMA
With over 90 hectares of baby vegetables planted at any one time, we are continuously growing, packing and exporting our baby vegetable range from Yukon Farm Tshakhuma.
Quality Veg farm is located in Ottery, Cape Town. A truly unique farming operation, this farm is just minutes away from both the iconic Table Mountain and Cape Town International Airport. Quality Veg have been Yukon grower partners since 2013.
Established in 1995, Pico-Gro first specialised in cut flowers and essential oils, but after several years of successful farming and an award for Female Farmer of the year in Gauteng, Erika became curious to explore new ideas.
YUKON FARM BOTHAVILLE
The majority of the baby vegetables that we export are grown on our very own Yukon Farm in Bothaville. We harvest between 4t and 6t of baby vegetables by hand every day and they arrive in Europe and the UAE within 72 hours of being harvested.
