As a part of the purchase of Blyderiver Farm in 2005, the Unifrutti Group obtained a 60% share in Blyde Pakkers Packhouse.
In 2009 the Unifrutti Group obtained the remaining 40% shareholding to fully acquire the Blyde Pakkers Packhouse. This has allowed the group to be in full control of the quality produced by the packhouse.
