Pronto Exports, based in Aconcagua Valley, Chile, is a packer and exporter of table grapes, kiwifruit, walnuts and avocados. Pronto Exports is owned by the Gioia family and was founded in 1930. The company’s operations stretch over 1,000 hectares, of which 600 hectares are dedicated to table grape exports.

Sun Fruits is located in what is said to be one of the richest and most ancient cultivated valleys in the world, the valley of Ica, 300 kilometers south of Lima, the capital city of Peru. As a grower, processor and exporter, the Sun Fruits group cultivates almost 1,000 hectares of grapes, avocados, citrus and blueberries.

Agricola Interandina is a Peruvian grower and exporter located in the heart of the Andes Mountains, around 200 kilometers northeast of Lima, providing ideal weather conditions to produce high-quality fruits. Agricola Interandina was founded by three fruit growers and currently exports mandarins, blueberries, grapes and avocados to clients across five continents.

“We are pleased to appoint these fine companies, to help bolster our presence in the global fruit trade,” said Sun World Vice President of Licensing Garth Swinburn. “We’re confident that providing further access to our seedless grape varieties will allow producers to maximize their revenues while increasing the seedless grape volume in Chile and Peru, and the visibility of our varietal brands.”

The three new licensees join more than 70 licensed marketers around the world who sell Sun World fruit varieties.
