Exporting dried grapes to Europe
Dried grapes are a traditional bakery and confectionary ingredient in Europe. They are increasingly used as a healthy snack, often in combination with nuts or other dried fruit. Opportunities for new developing country suppliers can be found in large markets such as the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Italy and Poland. New suppliers must be ready to compete with the strong Turkish supply, which provides more than half of Europe’s imports of dried grapes.
