The attention of UK dried fruit traders has turned to the southern hemisphere producing countries. Sources in Mildura, Australia, report that harvesting of the 2017 sultana crop is running two or three weeks behind last season, due to unfavourable weather conditions at the time of flowering and berry set last year.
It is expected that this year’s Australian sultana crop will be between 20%-25% smaller than that of 2016. This is due to a variety of factors including the natural variability of the yield from the particular type of grape used for drying.
