It's a family affair

As Grapa’s core is based on family values, Fruit Logistica gives us the great opportunity to meet up with the ARRA family; our partners and growers who contribute so much to making the ARRA programme a significant presence in the worldwide table grape industry. ARRA producers from all the twenty-six licensed countries visited us at the Grapa stand as well as producers from new regions, interested in introducing the ARRA varieties to their homelands.

We'll let the grapes speak for themselves

We received great feedback from the visitors to the Grapa stand who were impressed with the unique selection of ARRA varieties presented.

Thanks a Bunch!

A huge thanks and much gratitude to everybody who made the great effort to send the grapes to Berlin, the Grapa stand wouldn’t have been the same without your kind support.
