Citrusdal is a small agricultural town, approximately 170km from Cape Town. It is the Western Cape Province’s leading producer of citrus fruits, from where it derives its name. The town has just over 5000 residents, most of who work directly in the agricultural sector. Citrusdal is often referred to as the gateway to the Cederberg and the floral splendor of the Namaqualand region.
The Citrusdal Wines cellar is in the heart of the town and was initially amalgamated as a co-operative in 1957. In 2007 the operation was re-structured under the guidance of Charles Back. The company is now a collaborative partnership including a number of Fairtrade farmers, Charles Back and Mike Paul, who is a leading UK wine marketer. The incorporation of the Fairtrade farmers has indirectly seen a large number of farm workers from the community becoming partners in the business, as the funds generated through the Fairtrade levies go directly into the community.
