Selebi Phikwe Citrus is the first and biggest horticulture and citrus project ever undertaken in Botswana.
It aims to deliver quality fruit from the heart of Africa, whilst having a positive social and environmental impact on the communities in which the fruit is produced.
The SPC Project is envisaged to become a model citrus development in the region and the flagship horticultural development of Botswana and is situated adjacent to the town of Selebi Phikwe in the South-east of Botswana.
The land is leased from the local Mmadinare community for 31 years with an automatic renewal clause for a further 50 years. Water supply will be from two dam reservoirs, the Letsibogo and Sashe dams, with a combined capacity of some 150 million cubic meters, with an approved water allocation to the project of 8 million cubic meters out of the Letsibogo dam. Electricity supply will be from BPC, while back-up generators will be present for pump stations as well as the packhouse.
