Chile redirects grape exports from Europe to the U.S. and Asia
"In Europe, the most consumed grapes are seedless varieties, with Red Globe being one of the few varieties with seeds they accept. However, in Spain the most traditional varieties with seeds (Victoria, Ideal, Aledo, Red Globe) are still the most popular ones. France and Italy are the countries where some of the Spanish grapes with seeds are consumed," explains Estrella Miralles.
Production of Spanish grapes finished in late December, but the firm continues supplying grapes by importing them from countries in both hemispheres, therefore offering South African and Chilean Crimson; South African Flame; Namibian, South African, Chilean and Peruvian Sugraone; Peruvian, South African and Chilean Thompson; Peruvian and South African Red Globe and South African Victoria.
Regarding packaging, Estrella affirms that the national market still prefers loose grapes or boxes of 5 or 10 kg. "Some supermarkets also prepare boxes of 1.5 and 2 kg, and trays of 0.5 kg, but loose grapes are still the most popular. However, in other countries, especially of central and northern Europe, smaller formats are preferred."
