Georgia exported 245 tons of table grapes in October 2021. Exports dropped by 50 percent comparing to September 2021, but October volumes are still high. Volumes like these have never been seen in October, but it would be surprising to see an increase over September, given that exports were very that month.
The increase in volumes compared to October last year amounted to 40%. Russia remained the main export destination, accounting for 92% of Georgian table grape exports. Prices fell from $740 (FOB) in September 2021 to $720 in October 2021. This is a seasonal trend, as most of the October exports of table grapes come from refrigerators and buyers pay less.
So far, Georgia has exported 775 tons of table grapes since the beginning of the season in September. This is 3.2 times more than in the same period of 2020, which was a record high itself.
