# The managing director of Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing, Roelf Pienaar, says they welcome the news that China will take in pears from South Africa. He says they are cautiously optimistic about the positive impact that additional sales into China will have on their growers. He explained that this follows good growth in apple sales to the country. He expects pears to follow a similar trajectory but within a shorter period of time. The company is wholly owned by the growers at Two-a-Day in Grabouw and Ceres Fruit Growers.
