Sultanas here are tiny and black. Raisins are usually yellow, apart from the luscious large black ones.
The small, black dried grapes are definitely currants in England (origally from Corinth); the larger 'white' ones—actually yellow or yellowish—are sultanas, and the light to dark brown ones are raisins. They all originally came from various parts of Mediterranean countries, but where they're produced now I haven't a clue (except that the nicer raisins come from California). It seems that the designations vary a lot.

The ingredient in KT's list that rather puzzles me is 'celery'. Blanched, or green, or indeed celeriac?
