The variety has a distinctive vanilla flavor and its sweetness has earned it the cotton candy comparison.

The grapes are Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning they were produced using methods that support the three pillars of sustainability: social, economic, and environmental. This comes with the company’s firm commitment to sustainable farming and clear benefits for growers.

“With our expertise delivering consistent, high-quality eating experiences, Oppy assures top-notch fruit with programs, packaging options and flavors to drive your grape category forward,” Illiano said .
