What was it all about?

This project supported industry attendance at the International Prune Association Congress, held in Chile over four days in November 2016.

Attendance was for the purposes of building relationships, receiving updates, exchanging information and holding discussions on…

  • The global prune supply and demand situation and outlook
  • Best-practice production techniques and emerging technologies
  • Recent research coming out of producing countries
  • Promotion initiatives designed to increase prune consumption.

Findings and outcomes from the event were shared with the Australian industry through articles in the January-March 2017 issue of The Vine magazine, providing a better understanding of the global prune industry and the improved outlook for prunes, with reasonable balance in world supply and demand reported on at the event.


Read about the Congress in the January-March 2017 edition of The Vine magazine. Presentations from the event can also be accessed from the International Prune Association website.
