It’s not well known that grapes are one of the world’s most commonly produced fruit crops, with approximately 75 million tonnes produced each year. While almost 50% of grapes are used to make wine, 37% are consumed as fresh table grapes and 9% as dried grapes.

After focusing on sparkling wines in 2014 and rosé in 2015, the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) presents a new study about this very important part of the OIV field of expertise, grapes being the fruit crop with the highest total value of production in the world.

The study presents some key facts regarding food use and the nutritional value of the grape family products, as well as time series since 2000 on domestic production, exports and imports, market size, and apparent consumption.

The Director General of the OIV, Jean-Marie Aurand, as well as the deputy Director of the Statistics Division of the FAO, José Rosero Moncayo underlined that this publication is the tangible output of the good and long-standing FAO-OIV cooperation.
