​BLACK​ ​CORINTHIAN​ ​RAISINS 

Better​ ​quality​ ​in​ ​a​ ​higher​ ​price 

The​ ​harvest​ ​of​ ​black​ ​Corinthian​ ​raisins​ ​for​ ​2017​ ​was​ ​completed​ ​and​ ​the​ ​prices​ ​are 

expected​ ​to​ ​go​ ​beyond​ ​1​ ​euro​ ​per​ ​kilogram​ ​for​ ​the​ ​producer.​ ​The​ ​product,​ ​​which​ ​is 

still​ ​in​ ​the​ ​process​ ​of​ ​harvesting​,​ ​is​ ​estimated​ ​to​ ​be​ ​of​ ​better​ ​quality​ ​than​ ​last​ ​year, 

although​ ​the​ ​quantity​ ​is​ ​estimated​ ​to​ ​be​ ​reduced​ ​due​ ​to​ ​weather​ ​conditions. 

The​ ​heatwave​ ​and​ ​other​ ​severe​ ​weather​ ​conditions,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​hail,​ ​etc.,​ ​contributed​ ​to 

the​ ​limited​ ​harvest​ ​​ ​in​ ​almost​ ​all​ ​production​ ​areas​ ​of​ ​the​ ​prefectures​ ​of​ ​Corinthia, 

Achaia,​ ​Ilia,​ ​Messinia​ ​and​ ​Zakynthos. 

According​ ​to​ ​the​ ​chairman​ ​of​ ​SKOS​ ​S.A​ ​(Corinthian​ ​Raisins​ ​Cooperative)​ ​and 

Panegialios​ ​Union,​ ​Thanassis​ ​Sotiropoulos,​ ​the​ ​prices​ ​are​ ​expected​ ​to​ ​be​ ​quite 

satisfying​ ​for​ ​the​ ​producer,​ ​higher​ ​than​ ​last​ ​year​ ​which​ ​had​ ​ranged​ ​from​ ​0.90​ ​to​ ​1 

euro.
