US main destination for Peruvian asparagus

According to the Association of Exporters (ADEX), between January and September of 2017, Peruvian asparagus exports amounted to US $358,491,000, i.e. 5.9% less than in the same period last year.

According to the manager of a cooperative in San Borja, the fall was due to two reasons: the stagnation of production due to the age of the plantations, which has caused a low yield, and the high temperatures of the coastal El Niño, which reduced the productive level.

Despite presenting a 1.5% drop in demand, fresh asparagus was the main variety exported, with US $265,667,000, i.e. 74.1% of the total invoiced.

They were followed by canned asparagus with US $70,181,000 (a deceleration of 20.4%) and frozen asparagus with sales of US $22,642,000 (-1.9%).

According ADEX Data Trade, the United States was the main importer of Peruvian asparagus, as shipments to that country between January and September amounted to US $184,228,000.

Peru exports asparagus to another 45 markets; including Spain (US $45,756,000), the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, Japan and others.
