The table grape family
Most of Australia’s table grape farms are family owned and operated. Second and third generation family members are now taking a more active role in the family table grape business and investing in innovation and technology for the future sustainability of the industry. There are almost 1000 growers Australia-wide who produced more than 220,000 tonnes of table grapes last year across 25,000 hectares of grapes, with 70% grown for export to an increasing number of countries and the remaining 30% consumed domestically.
Property expansion, increased productivity and new varieties have led to significant industry growth over the past five years.
