AU: Better year for sultana producers

Sultana growers are looking forward to record prices of around $2000 a ton this season. This represents a bit change from last season, when some growers did not even bother harvesting as prices were so low.

South Australian Riverland grower, Philip Sims, says quality has increased significantly and more Australian consumers are demanding local produce.

"There is a big demand for Australian sultanas and probably mainly by Australian consumers who've had the pleasure for many years of eating Australian sultanas and they are now feeling that some of the stuff they're getting is not what they're used to getting."
