Domestic Grape Market Challenges Imports
Produce industry veteran Rick
Eastes continues to have great insight on the evolving grape market.
Availability of heavier late-season
grapes from California in early January could create some marketing tension
between domestic and imported grape supplies, Eastes believes.
There are many newer and later season
varieties from California still in the marketplace and will be there for weeks.
The heavy late season grapes could be
in the way of product coming from Chile and other areas in the Southern
Hemisphere. Whether or not the U.S. supply will cause tension is not known.
Consumers can help by buying an extra bunch and
taking them home to eat.
