Rise in India’s grape exports
As the 2021-22 Indian table grape season draws to a close, the indications are that exports will surpass last year’s volume of 120,000 tons, despite the Russian invasion of Ukraine and unseasonal rainfall.
India has so far exported 92,000 tons of grapes to Europe, with 60,000 tons shipped to the Netherlands, 11,000 tons to the UK and 9,000 tons to Germany. According to data provided by the state agriculture department, before the Russia-Ukraine conflict started, 15,000 tons had been sent to the two countries. That compares with 17,600 tons shipped to the two last season.
