According to estimates, only a few thousand tonnes of table grapes from the 2022 harvest will remain in storage in Moldova next year.
Moldovan traders exported about 18 000 tonnes of grapes from the 2021 harvest in January-March this year, EastFruit reports. Winter and spring exports of Moldovan grapes did not fall below 6 000-7 000 tonnes in the last five or six years according to east-fruit.com
This is firstly, due to relatively small volume of marketable grapes from the current year’s harvest stored for export in the second half of autumn and winter (according to expert estimates, about 20 000-30 000 tonnes). The second reason is intensive exports. More than 20 000 tonnes were exported from the country in September-October, and the high rate of exports was preserved in November.
