Chile: Table grape starts late but bigger volumes



The 2014-2015 table grape season began and the first shipments were made during week 49, one week later than in the 2013-2014 season but with a higher volume than last season, i.e. 3,277 tons versus 2,964 tons. The main target market was the U.S. (East Coast) with 3,216 tons, followed by Latin America with 46 tons and the Far East with 18 tons.

88% of this volume came from the III Region and the rest from the IV and V Region. This area began its harvest timidly during week 47 and expectations are that this season will be good in terms of quality and volume.

According to estimates, Chile will produce 12.2 million boxes of table grapes this season, i.e. 4% more than in the 2013-2014 campaign, when they produced 11.8 million boxes. This increase is mainly due to the good weather in the region during winter and spring, which has favoured the development of the fruit.
