On July 27th, the Raisin Bargaining Association’s Board of Directors offered their Signatory Packers a sliding scale fixed price of $1500-$1900/ton (depending on crop size) for the 2020 Natural Seedless Raisin Crop.
The Raisin Bargaining Board of Directors has also offered our Signatory Packers a fixed price of $2500/ton for the 2020 Zante Currant crop.
The Board of Directors is asking all their RBA Signatory Packers to accept, counter, or reject this offer by 8/10/20 at 5:00 p.m. The RBA Board of Directors strongly believes it is in the best interest of not only our growers, but all raisin growers, to set a fixed price in this tumultuous year and hope that our processors also realize this and are willing to negotiate with the RBA to establish a 2020 crop price.
Sincerely, Kalem Barserian, RBA CEO
