Italy: Rough end to table grape season

Nicola Giuliano (in the photo), owner with brothers Vito and Giovanni of Giuliano Puglia Fruit, comments on the end of the table grape campaign.

"It was characterised by bad weather, storms and tornadoes which affected produce in Sicily and Puglia. To that, we must add the total silence of the Table Grapes Produce Committee, which did nothing about it."

"We expected a series of measures to impede the entrance on the market of grapes outside of all categories, but instead it became a competitor for the produce we managed to sell, thus causing prices to drop," states the entrepreneur.

"Sending the produce to the processing industry would have helped everyone, as it would have saved the reputation of made in Italy grapes, whereas now producers have to deal with all the damage that has been done."

"Our clients are also confused due to bunches being sold at €0.70 and others at €2.20. The same goes for consumers."

As regards to Giuliano Paglia Fruit, at the moment they are still harvesting the produce that managed to live through the latest weather disturbances. "We are talking about extra quality of Italia, Red Globe, Crimson and Regal grapes, which are mainly destined to Germany, France, Spain,The Netherlands and the UK, and which could be sold at between €2 and 2.50 per kilo," concludes Nicola Giuliano.
