IBO: PERU IS ON THE WAY TO BECOMING THE LARGEST EXPORTER OF FRESH BLUEBERRIES IN THE WORLD
The optimism of the blueberry industry in Peru for becoming the main exporter of fresh blueberries in the world has solid foundations. And it is that the South American country has experienced an exponential growth in recent years, reaching 78,000 tons in its 2018-2019 campaign and hoping to exceed 120,000 tons in the next two years.
Roberto Vargas, co-owner of Agricola Santa Azul and president of ProArandanos Peru, commented that “Peru is the country with the highest growth worldwide and is on its way to becoming the largest exporter in the world. We expect this next season to be between 100 and 110 thousand tons, but anyway for the 2020-2021 season we should be above 120,000 tons exported, ”he said.
