Slight decline in global production
According to the latest report from the International Nut and Dried Fruit Council (INC), global sultana production declined by 2% in the 2021/2022 season. A total of 1.33 million mt of sultanas, raisins and other dried grapes were produced. According to the report, Turkey achieved a 7% increase in production to 290,000 mt. China and the USA also increased their yields compared to last year. However, the additional production was offset by lower results in countries such as Iran, Uzbekistan and Chile.
