SA Fruit Journal: October / November 2021

One of the primary objectives of the SA Table Grape Industry (SATI) is market access, with the specific mandate to play a role in gaining access to new export markets and retaining and optimising access to existing markets. By Anna Mouton and Tarryn Wettergreen

Market access objectives are achieved through SATI’s operational focus areas, one of which is Research and Technical Transfer.
