Delegations from Argentina, Australia, Chile, Greece, Iran, South Africa, Türkiye, and the United States participated in the third online meeting of the International Seedless Dried Grape Producing Countries Conference.

Mr. Osman Oz from Türkiye was elected chairman, Mr. Mark King from Australia was elected deputy chairman, and Mrs. Ece Tırkaz from Türkiye was elected secretary respectively for the conference.

The statistical analysis undertaken at the Conference showed that the total availability of Thompson Seedless Raisin and Sultanas, decreased by 7% as world stocks carried into the new season and new crop production dropped. This was mainly driven by adverse weather conditions across various production origins.

Carryover stocks are down 27.75%, but it will be possible to supply normal market demands. Regarding the supply situation for currants, it was noted that 20.000 tons of Greek crop currants is expected. And total supply of Greek currants will be 22.500 with 2.500 carryover stock.

It was confirmed that the next conference will be held in Türkiye, October 13-14, 2023.
