Despite the decline in global exports, the popularity of table grapes continues to rise, according to Rabobank

( According to a recent Rabobank report, global table grape exports decreased compared to the previous season, but appear to be on a growth trajectory. Supplier countries face various challenges as they strive to improve efficiency. White seedless varieties are gaining popularity, with demand increasing.
Despite a global export decline of 5% in the 2022/23 season, many countries are adjusting their production to meet demand and improve operational efficiency. "This has been the second highest global table grape export season in history, only surpassed by the previous one in 2021/22. We hope that the upward trend in exports observed in the last decade will continue in the coming years" , says Gonzalo Salinas, Fresh Products analyst at Rabobank. Weather irregularities play an important role in the challenges faced by the main suppliers in different areas. Chile experienced an 18% decline in exports due to the elimination of low-yielding areas and other efforts to improve profitability over the last ten seasons. For its part, Peru emerged as the largest exporter last season, shipping almost 600,000 tons, despite logistical interruptions caused by political protests in early 2023.
