No batch of fruit has been found in premium quality for two years
Japanese supermarkets often do not sell fruit that has defects or is the wrong size. The fruits go through a rigorous inspection process in Japan to ensure quality standards are met. The grapes are correctly classified into three categories – Superior, Special Superior and Premium. To qualify as premium, the grapes must be perfect. Reports suggest that only two batches of Roman grapes qualified as premium in 2021, while none qualified in 2019 and 2020.
