Australia’s warm, dry summers and deep, rich soils provide an excellent environment for growers to produce world-class table grapes.
Valued at almost $1 billion, the table grape industry is one of the most valuable horticultural industries in Australia. Our growers produced more than 220,000 tonnes of table grapes last year across 25,000 hectares of grapes, with 70% grown for export to an increasing number of countries and the remaining 30% consumed domestically.
Over the last few years, the table grape industry has been through a period of expansion. Hectares of non-productive land, particularly in Sunraysia, are being redeveloped into table grape vineyards and packing shed facilities, and Australia-wide new landholders are investing in existing table grape properties.
