At the close of the 2022 harvest and complying with market estimates given a couple of months ago, Chile had a total prunes production of 90,000 metric tons (MT), of which 71,000 MT were available for dehydration. The remaining 19,000 MT were used for fresh fruit.

Pedro Acuña, executive director of Chileprunes, confirmed that of the total prunes production, more than 70,000 tons were available for dehydration.

Figures higher than those recorded in the previous period, indicates Pedro Acuña, executive director of Chileprunes, who adds that last season there were lower world stocks due to production losses in Chile, France and Argentina and which influenced a rise in international prices.
