We are delighted to have seen a consistent, excellent quality from the Indian table grapes harvested this year and we are pleased to keep adding value to the supply-chain by packing at source. Our farms based in Nashik, Maharashtra, possess near perfect conditions for the growing of table grape which enhances the sugar content of the berries.
As a result, we were able to supply 770,000+ cases, over 4.3 million kilograms of sweetness around the world.
This year we are delighted to report on the fantastic development and enhanced quality of our Thompson Seedless, Sonaka, Crimson Seedless and Sharad. Due to our high standards, we hold ourselves accountable to each year, we aspire for an improved yield than the year before.
Exclusive ARRA 15 (Sweeties™)
As the Master Licence holders for ARRA™ varieties in India, it’s been a rewarding to see the progression of our premium, crunchy white grape ARRA 15 (ARRA Sweeties™) throughout the season.
Collaborating with our “Growing Together” partners Sahyadri Farms, India’s largest exporter of fresh produce, we’re able to supply premium grade grapes to our customers.
Completing the second year of commercial production in India, the balanced tasting ARRA 15 berries ranged from 18-22mm allowing us to compete with South Africa and Chile on premium quality whilst maintaining great value.
A highlight of ours happened in week 14, we saw our record-breaking packing week and the quality of crop left us confident in our supply throughout May.
We look forward to our third commercial production later on this year, beginning in December.
