Tridge summary

The Chilean table grape industry is experiencing a season with a 5% to 10% decrease in volume, expecting to reach between 57 to 58 million units, attributed to various market performances across regions. North America has seen an 'extraordinary' season due to high prices from supply shortages, while Latin America performed well, China had weaker results, and Europe favored red varieties. Efforts are underway to maintain high fruit quality for the remaining weeks. Additionally, the industry is focusing on improving grape quality over volume, with Chilean producers removing less successful vine varieties, a strategy expected to be adopted by counterparts in Peru and South Africa.

The pending approval of the Systems Approach with the United States by the Chilean Congress is also highlighted as crucial for future operations and market access.
