Georgian table grapes being sold at record prices

In Georgia, average wholesale prices are about 1.70-2.00 GEL/kg ($0.60-0.70) for white and red table grapes, respectively. The annual price increase is 10-30%. The prices usually remain stable for the next 2-3 weeks and start rising in October as the season comes to an end and stocks are reduced.

In this early period, wholesale prices are the highest ever. So far, the record was in 2021. In addition to the increase in production and maintenance costs often reported by fruit, nut and vegetable growers in Georgia, market research has identified some specific developments in the table grape business.

A large volume of table grapes deteriorated this season as rainy weather has brought disease. Growers who didn’t manage to deal with or avoid them are now forced to sell their grapes for processing at 1/3-1/4 current prices. Some vineyards were damaged by hail.
