The grape market in South Africa has been severely affected by the drought and other weather conditions. Eddy Kreukniet of the Dutch fruit and vegetable wholesaler, Exsa Europe, says there is a shortage in the grape market and this will affect the projected volumes for the harvest season. “We are at 18-20% behind on the projected volume, as are our colleagues. We also do not expect the production in the Hex River area in South Africa, which is now going to become available, to correct this imbalance,” says Kreukniet. “The season started late. This has resulted in a good market situation. There is hardly any stock and the grapes are selling fast. We are continuously planning for the next shipment.” – Fresh Plaza
