In a journey that started for us back in 2010 to build trust in Indian table grape supplies, we’re pleased to be adding value to the supply-chain right from planting through to packing at source.

We focus on improving the customer experience by delivering consistency, transparency, improving quality and increasing availability.

Traditional grapes

Although we are working to continually expand our new variety portfolio, traditional varieties continue to play an important role in our production from India.

Nurtured in the ideal surroundings of Nashik, Maharashtra, our Thompson Seedless volume continues to increase weekly. Our other traditional varieties including Sharad, Crimson Seedless and Sonaka Seedless are also in excellent condition with the ideal size and brix.

The quality that we have seen so far from our Indian farms has left us confident that we are in an exceptionally strong position for the remaining weeks of the season.

Our Indian farms will continue to supply table grapes until around WEEK 23.

A view of the market…

Current positive condition of the market has reinforced our expectations for a continued strong performance as we move throughout the season.

Weather ahead of the season

Conditions on farm in the Nashik region are ideal with normal daytime averages of around 30° and lows of 14° overnight.
