Gallo Sets Thompson Price at $250 a Ton

While the California raisin industry is still trying to negotiate a per ton price, E & J Gallo Winery has come out with a $250 per ton offer for any Thompsons that are harvested green for the winery, noted Nat DiBuduo, president and CEO if Allied Grape Growers in Fresno

The price is down from last year’s $325 a ton price.  It will most likely mean that many raisin producers will opt for raisin production instead of for juice.

DiBuduo said that he was somewhat surprised by the price drop, but added that crop is 25 percent larger this year.
