Our Warehouse Solution for The Fruitspot in Greenfield Industrial Park, Airport Industria


Baker Street Properties is proud to welcome our new client The Fruitspot to Greenfield Industrial Park – a brand new property development in Airport Industria, Cape Town. The company signed a lease for 4200 square meters with major landlord Growthpoint Properties, with the business solution designed and brokered by our Industrial Property Director, Lloyd Nussey.

About The Fruitspot

From humble beginnings in Midrand, Johannesburg, the business has outgrown itself every 3 to 4 years. The move to a new building in Marlboro in July 2008 bears testimony to the success the company has achieved over this period. Founded in 1989, the Ferreira Brothers identified a need for value-for-money fruit and vegetables with a focus on quality service. In January 2012, The Fruitspot was bought by MAKRO, South Africa (part of MASSMART) and has maintained the same values that made the business the success it is today. The brand is trusted in the food service, catering, hospitality, retail and food manufacturing industries.

About The Business Solution

The Fruitspot has a fleet of more than 120 vehicles ranging from 1/2 tonners to 30 tonne rigs. All vehicles are refrigerated and travel in excess of 15 000 kilometres per day covering Kwa-Zulu Natal, Northern Cape, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, Free State and Gauteng. The fleet is serviced on site with a dedicated wash bay ensuring vehicles meet the brand’s strict standards on hygiene.

With this in mind, Lloyd identified Greenfield Industrial Park as an ideal business solution, as the this particular new development met all of the company’s strict hygienic standards and custom drainage requirements which were installed to specification. Other significant aspects of importance to The Fruitspot was the Development’s 4 Star Green Rating in meeting both hygienic and industry best practices, as well as generous turning circles for easy loading and off-loading of vehicles.

Pro-active involvement from Peter Arnold and Basil De Oliveira from The Fruitspot has assisted Lloyd to find the best business solution and to efficiently conclude negotiation proceedings with our valued landlord Growthpoint Properties.
