"Eric Dierick: "The same clients as previous years"

Beltran receives blue grapes from South Africa once again

Beltran (Group Achiel de Witte), established by the CE in Brussels, received the first blue grapes by air from South Africa, on Monday, the 16th of December. Eric Dierick mentions, that just as in previous years, they offer the variety Black Gem. "As we have to sell these grapes at a high price because of the airfreight, we only offer them in Extra Large."

One of our shippers, with whom we have arranged our air and sea freight grapes or many years, is SAFPRO. Apart from grapes we also do apples, pears and citrus with SAFPRO, both packed under our own brands CIBEL and CEBON and under their own SAFPRO hallmark."

Good demand
According to Eric the demand for grapes may be called good. "The clients buying these grapes from Beltran are the same as in previous years. There is not an enormous shortage in Italian blue grapes like in the last years, but nevertheless many clients have already changed to new origins." Eric mentions that this weekend another shipment from South Africa will be flown in. "And after that it will be over for this year again."
