SANTIAGO, CHILE - The global table grape supply is a central topic of discussion for operators in Chile and Peru. Organizations from both countries will be collaborating at the Global Grape Convention 2024 to seek solutions to challenges and provide market information. From climatic factors, the pandemic, logistical issues in origin and destination, and the cultivation of new varieties, world leaders are meeting for the first time of this magnitude to take action on August 8, 2024.

Iván Marambio, President, Frutas de Chile“The international table grape industry is at a defining moment,” warns Iván Marambio, President of Frutas de Chile. “With the explosive increase in global supply and lower growth in demand, a significant imbalance has occurred. So if we do not do something to increase consumption, there will be irreversible adjustments.”

The Fruits of Chile Table Grape Committee, the Association of Table Grape Producers of Peru (PROVID), and Yentzen Group seek to deliver and provide information for the market while bringing together retailers and importers to seek collaborative solutions to increase and diversify consumption.

PROVID General Manager Alejandro Cabrera commented.

Alejandro Cabrera, General Manager, Association of Table Grape Producers of Peru“We consider it very important to communicate this in a very solid, very direct, and realistic way, so that everyone involved in this sector is aware of it,” he says. “Supply has increased, but demand has not increased at the same level, and we have to be responsible. If we do not act today, it will be very difficult for the business to remain sustainable and sustained over time. That is why we consider the Global Grape Convention important and powerful, since it aims to address the future envisioned for table grapes in these two largest supplier countries of Peru and Chile.”

According to a press release, the only way to achieve the objective of increasing demand is for the world's leading producing countries to understand this challenge and act together.

Gustavo Yentzen, Chief Executive Officer, Yentzen Group“We wanted to impart a commercial rather than technical perspective of what the last few seasons have been like and the opportunities for improvement,” says Gustavo Yentzen, Chief Executive Officer of Yentzen Group. “The Global Grape Convention 2024 will unite these important associations from two relevant countries in the sector to generate collaboration and competitiveness.”
