South Africa: Raisin Annual

Post forecasts that raisin production will increase by 3 percent to 77,000 Metric Tons (MT) in the 2019/20 Marketing Year (MY), due to the rise in area planted, new orchards coming into full production, wine grapes being diverted for raisin production, normal weather conditions, and the continued availability of irrigation water. The United States is now the second largest market for South African raisin exports accounting for 14 percent of the total export market share. South African raisin exports enjoy duty free access to the United States under the African Growth Opportunity Act (AGOA).
