North America

USA

The US Table Grape industry produces around 110-120 million boxes a year, with around 35-40% exported to 50 countries each year. T&G works with a range of large growers (5-10 million boxes) medium growers (1-4 million boxes) and small growers (< 1 million). We select the best varieties available and combine manifests from multiple growers to give our customers the best value each week. We have access to a range of proprietary varieties, as well as the ever-expanding new variety selection we are seeing each year in California.

Mexico

The Mexico Table Grape season is short and fast, with majority of the volume being harvested in an 8-week period. T&G works with two of the biggest growers in Mexico, which means access to volume is never an issue. We also have a range of smaller growers we select varieties from for niche markets. Mexico has some of the highest temperatures any grape growing region faces, which means you need to have a very experienced and robust quality control team in place that T&G has.
