Citrus Research International (CRI) is a research and technical services organisation based in South Africa that focuses primarily on citrus.

CRI coordinates and funds research conducted by the CRI Group which includes close collaboration between CRI and a wide range of partners. There is a strong focus on the southern African citrus industry’s needs as they relate to the industry’s heavy reliance on export of fresh fruit to global markets.

In CRI we have five specialised divisions as well as our administration division, which assist us in executing our mandate towards citrus growers in South Africa.

Citrus research in Southern Africa, largely funded by a levy on export cartons, is divided into three portfolios.
