Table grape export protection for exports to Asia

Hazel Technologies, Inc. announces a collaboration with McFarland, California-based Jakov Dulcich & Sons, a family-owned and operated table grape grower/packer/shipper with more than 3,000 acres of vertically integrated fresh table grapes under management.

Dulcich & Sons, best known for its Pretty Lady brand, exports green, red and black varietals globally through its worldwide marketing arm, Sunlight International Sales, Inc. Its varietals include Adora®, Autumn Crisp®, Green Emerald®, Midnight Beauty®, Scarlotta® and Sugar Drop® which it exports to countries including Vietnam, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia and Korea.

According to the Giannini Foundation of Agricultural Economics, California table grape exporters experienced at least a 16 percent decrease in export volume in 2021 relative to 2020. While many exporters turned to air freight, this choice came with a hefty price tag.

Dulcich & Sons plans to continue its 2022 export program with Hazel Tech. With its flagship technology, Hazel 100™, it says its table grapes arrive with greener stems across multiple varieties even after extended time on the water.

“Not only have I seen the benefits of Hazel 100 with my own eyes, but my customers are seeing it too,” said Nick Dulcich, co-owner and president at Dulcich & Sons. “One of our customers in Malaysia raved about seeing greener stems from our Hazel 100-treated grapes. This is just one of many reasons why we’re planning on using Hazel 100 on our export and storage grapes in 2022.”

“Investing in Hazel 100 is a step worth taking, especially during these trying times in the supply chain,” said Mike Rubidoux, director of sales strategy at Hazel Technologies. “By using it, exporters will have peace of mind that their grapes will arrive with greener stems, leading to less adjustments upon inspection and greater returns overall.”
