Peruvian 2021/2022 Table Grape Campaign Exceeds Expectations


The 2021/2022 Peruvian table grape season is coming to an end, and despite difficulties, the season ended up exceeding industry expectations, aided by favorable marketing conditions in its receiving markets.

Three weeks before the end of the 2021/22 season, the Peruvian Table Grape Producers Association (Provid) does not expect any changes to its updated projections published in mid-February, it told to Agraria.

According to its figures, the season will exceed 64 million boxes of table grapes shipped, reflecting an increase of 12 percent and positioning itself as the world’s second biggest exporter of table grapes by volume.

Provid pointed out that the growth is mainly due to the different varieties available, and that this season there has been a 37 percent increase in white seedless varieties and 22 percent in shipments of red seedless grapes, until January.

After the Peruvian table grape harvest, Arturo Hoffmann, commercial manager of Don Ricardo, assured that “success has also been seen thanks to the best prices, which is the result of the market dynamics that implies the exit of the grape from Californian table and the delay of Chilean arrivals.”
