Citrus growers in South Africa’s Eastern Cape have lost almost R300 million over the past three weeks after the Sundays River Valley, a key producing region in that province, was rocked by protest action. Business Insider reports that exporters who had already secured space on shelves overseas are now unable to fill them up, and farmers have also fallen behind their fruit picking schedules, resulting in lower export volumes. The workers, represented by the South African National Civic Organisation, are demanding a wage increase to R30.00 from the current R23.19.
