Pacific Trellis Fruit, Los Angeles, CA officially announced today their strategic partnership with Labrunier, the largest table grape producer in Brazil.    With over 900 hectares in production Labrunier, located in the state of Bahia, has one of the world’s largest areas for growing and testing new table grape varieties selected for flavor, crop yield and adversity to disease.  Labrunier’s entire production is internationally certified by Rainforest Alliance. 

“We have been investing in this relationship with Labrunier over the past three years,” explains Josh Leichter”, General Manager.  “We are excited to offer our customers an early import option with exclusive new varieties.  Labrunier’s focus on innovation is a natural fit for Pacific Trellis Fruit.”

New varieties include Francis, Sweet Mayabelle, Candy Snaps, Timco, Sweet Celebration, Sugar Crisp and Sweet Globe.  The program from Brazil provides North American retailers the opportunity to continue the offerings of new variety grapes to consumers as the California crop winds down. 

“We are particularly excited about the Francis grape, developed by Embrapa- the Brazilian Ag Research Corporation, which is a black seedless grape with a Muscat flavor and hints of raspberry and mango,” said Leichter.  “We are also hopeful to receive limited volumes of the Cotton Candy variety which has seen huge demand here in the U.S. market.”

“Fazendas Labrunier and Pacific Trellis Fruit have teamed up to provide the premium and new grape varieties with strong early season import volume,” explains Aryan Schut, Commercial Manager.  “This partnership promotes each company in new markets, supporting their growth in the business.  We pay close attention in every detail during the production process to guarantee that the grapes will arrive at the consumer’s house always fresh and sweet.” 

With the first arrivals of green seedless varieties available at the end of October, these premium quality grapes will be in good supply for the holiday selling season.  Please contact to secure a strong import table grape program.
