Grape Exports
California table grapes are a big hit in a couple of island nations thousands of miles away.

California table grapes are a big hit over in England and Ireland.
And according to the California Table Grape commission in Fresno, exports to those nations has increased by 36 percent in less than two years.
In fact, both England and Ireland import nearly 90 percent of all California Table Grapes headed to Europe which is nearly 400-thousand 10 pound boxes.
Another positive result of this, the California Table Grape Commission is taking part in the Fruit Logistica Conference going on this week in Berlin to further promote the crop in Europe and elsewhere in the world.
