Namibian grape harvest commences with great quality

The Namibian grape harvest has commenced with good sizes and quality. For the AgriBusDev Company in the Aussenker region of the country, harvesting will start on Monday, according to Symon Akwenye, Farm Manager, the season is running a few days later than last year.

"Quality is great, especially for the large and extra large sizes in Flame seedless, Sugraone and Thompson seedless. Despite the slight lateness of the crop we will still be in the market before the main competitors."

The company exports mainly to the EU and UK markets, but are also exploring the Chinese, Middle East and other Asian markets and will ship some small volumes to the Middle East this season.

Akwenye said that the European market is looking good for the first arrivals in week 50.

The company grows grapes on 60 ha and they also grow 40 ha of dates as well as 40 ha of vegetables.
