Chilean rain triggers pricing and supply changes on grapes

Grape supplies in North America are shifting following the significant rain Chile received earlier this year, impacting its growing season. According to Larry Davidson of North American Produce Buyers, North America will get the majority of what’s shipped. A large percentage of the Chile’s white grapes has condition issues which is a challenge. However, Chile has shipped many red grapes as they hold up better in the rain. Pricing between red and green grapes are very different, with the former costing less.
