Mexican grape season is on track for strong supply
Four Star Fruit Inc. expects strong volume to supply this year’s Mexican table grape season. Each year Four Star Fruit boasts year-over-year volume growth, and this year the company is expecting volume growth to be 25-30 percent higher due to its robust Mexican grape program.
Harvest has begun this week and volume will continue to ramp up as the summer months progress, projecting good yield and great quality into late summer.
“Our growers have committed to replanting the best industry varieties,” said Jack Campbell, long-term table grape grower-marketer-shipper. “We will be able to support strong retail promotions, in particular Memorial Day ads, with the volumes we are projecting this season.”
The Mexican program allows Four Star Fruit to offer a well-rounded uninterrupted yearly supply of table grapes. The ability to assist retailers in growing the table grape category has been well received. “Our commitment is to provide the consumer a best-in-class fresh grape experience. Our retail partners see great value in our ability to manage that end to end," said Campbell.
Touting best-in-class organic and specialty varieties, Four Star Fruit has the ability to deliver all varieties in various pack styles, catering to the changing desires of today’s grape consumer
