Global Fruit is a developing company that is heavily involved in the innovation of apple production in Ontario. This project is the result of years of intensive research and development. In 1998 the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Apple Commission reported that the Ontario apple industry was in steady decline and had an uncertain future.
Ontario Apple Industry
To date wide spread specialization of the Ontario apple industry has not occurred. There are only a few specialized apple producers in Ontario, and for that reason Ontario is importing approximately 40 - 50% of its total fresh apple requirements. Most Ontario apple producers are very small and have yet to focus their efforts solely to the efficient production of high quality consumption apples.
