Our Story

A lack of nutrition in our lives and a perceived lack of nutrition in the lives of numerous friends and family prompted the establishment of Frutee Belliez in Umlazi in 2009

We both hail from Umlazi and understand first-hand, the hardships of poverty and the attendant lack of finance, coupled with ignorance about the undoubted health benefits fresh fruit and vegetables provide. Our company’s humble beginnings saw us preparing fruit salads in plastic cups for sale to learners attending high schools in Umlazi, but the focus quickly shifted to the inclusion of a vegetable offering to a far wider customer base.

Today the company has expanded into the provision of mouth-watering fruit salads from a range of seasonal fruit, the supply of vegetable salads and the preparation of a variety of peeled and chopped vegetable packs. We now process and package fresh fruit and vegetables for use in private homes and for catering companies, bed & breakfast operations and industrial kitchens.

Such has been the demand for our company’s range of fresh produce products that we are now looking to expand our venture so as to be able to supply hotels and boarding schools. We are living in the business fast-lane and our company is committed to saving you time in today’s high-pressure environment, having the skills and capacity to supply quality peeled and chopped fruit and/or vegetables for both everyday usage and special events.
