Australia’s reputation as a ‘clean and safe’ producer of fruit and
vegetables, as well as its ability as a counterseasonal supplier, has
strengthened its export potential.
Australian table grapes are the highest fresh fruit horticultural export, worth more than $623 million in 2019/20.
Australian table grapes are exported to 42 countries around the world. In the 2019/20 season, more than 220,000 tonnes of table grapes were produced, with 152,200 tonnes (70 per cent) exported.
Quality fresh Australian grapes are produced in a pristine, clean environment and grown under environmentally friendly and socially responsible practices. The industry has adopted the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system, employing a wide range of tactics to reduce the use of chemicals. It also gives consumers the confidence of knowing fresh Australian grapes meet international food safety standards as growers meet requirements determined by the maximum residue limits (MRLs).
Each year, the ATGA releases the Australian Table Grape Exporter Directory, a vital link between exporters and buyers.
Hort Innovation releases the Hort Statistics Handbook each year in an easy-to-read guide, offering comprehensive and contemporary data on the table grape industry (as well as other commodities within the horticulture sector).
