Australian table grape growers have earned a strong reputation as reliable suppliers of fresh sweet grapes of a high standard quality. Estimated to be worth $135 million, table grapes are Australia’s second-highest export-earning horticulture industry after citrus.
The value of the industry continues to grow with increased demand in northern hemisphere markets from countries seeking fruit all year round. As a southern hemisphere producer, Australia is ideally located to act as a counter seasonal supplier to export nations like Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. The industry’s reputation for quality grapes and its extended growing season has seen increasing volumes of fruit sent to new overseas markets. The European Union and Middle East markets are expanding for Australian table grapes.
Table grapes can be harvested and packed from around Australia and shipped directly to wholesale markets or supermarket chains worldwide with optimal efficiency. Dragon Investments Corporation Pty Ltd. can source new release table grape varieties to suit customer demands.
