Noord Agter Paarl Koelkamers (NAPK) was founded in 1996 to build a dedicated cold store for the Hoekstra Fruit Farms group in order to reduce costs and to preserve and manage the cold-chain. NAPK changed their name in 2016 to Hoekstra Coldstore. Hoekstra Fruit Farms, Hoekstra Fruit Exporters and Hoekstra Coldstore work closely together and strive to perfect the art of delivering fruit of the highest quality to our clients. Our goal is to provide its clients with an outstanding service by cooling and handling palletized fruit in a way that is safe and does not compromise quality.
Hoekstra Coldstore services include intake, documentation, cooling, storage and dispatch of both cooled and uncooled palletized fruit. Other services include breaking down/rebuilding of pallets on request. Hoekstra Coldstore cools and stores its own (Hoekstra Fruit Farms) as well as external clients’ fruit.
Hoekstra Coldstore aquired SOLAS VGM accreditation in 2016 and is authorised to use VGM Method 1 (Weighbridge) and Method 2 (Individual pallets). Hoekstra Coldstore recently installed a state of the art modular weighbridge catering for the recording of individual axle weights.
