CHICAGO, IL - Hazel Technologies is continuing to spotlight categories across the produce industry with its latest Quality Summit, this time turning its attention toward table grapes. Taking place May 6, the one-hour event will feature speakers with expertise in the category sharing key insights as the North American table grape season hits its stride.

Mario Cervantes, Director of Business Development – AgTech, Hazel Technologies“It is amazing to see the impact our flagship technology is making for table grapes,” said Mario Cervantes, Director of Business Development – AgTech at Hazel Technologies. “With greener stems arriving around the world, we are delivering a solution that is helping mitigate the world’s current supply chain issues. I’m excited to dive deeper into the trial results we have seen over the last year at the summit.”

Cervantes will join Anne-Marie Roernik, Founder and Principal at 210 Analytics, in discussing the successes of the table grape category over the past year, but will additionally provide greater insight and understanding of the supply chain and market, according to a press release. The summit will also include grower perspectives discussing current headwinds and tailwinds for the category.

Anne-Marie Roerink, Founder and Principal, 210 Analytics“Grape sales at retail have been very strong recently,” said Roerink. “As the ideal kid snack or as part of a fancy charcuterie board, grapes’ versatility drove $3.6 billion in sales during the latest 52 weeks. This was an increase of 7.2 percent versus a year ago.”

The summit will close with Cervantes discussing a Hazel® 2021 trial conducted alongside Oppy and Brar Farms while elaborating on postharvest technologies for the grape industry.
