In the campaign 2022/2023, Peru plans to export 276,978 tons of blueberries, that is, 25% more than this season, according to the Association of Blueberry Producers of Peru (Proarándanos). The growth would be achieved thanks to greater supplies to China (3%), the United Kingdom (1%) and the European Union (1%).
This campaign that began in July 2021 and is about to end, Peru exported 222,714 tons of fresh blueberries, which means an increase of 37% compared to the previous season (2020/2021), says the same source.
According to the union, the results are favorable because new markets have been opened in 2021, such as India, which received the first 23 tons of the Peruvian berry.
The National Agrarian Health Service (Senasa) reported that it is in the last stretch to gain access for the fruit to the Israeli markets. In this way, Peruvian blueberries will reach 32 destinations.
