Peru-EU trade deal provides boost to avocado & blueberry producersTo mark the 5th anniversary of the EU’s trade accord with Colombia and Peru, a delegation of Members of the European Parliament are visiting those countries this week to analyse the implementation of the accord and its outcomes.
Last year, trade between Peru and the EU totaled some $10 billion, $6 billion of which corresponded to Peruvian exports, according to EU ambassador in Peru, Diego Mellado. Producers of Peru’s ‘superfoods’, native and highly nutritious products such as quinoa, Hass avocados and blueberries, have emerged as big winners in these first five years of the Andean nation’s free-trade agreement with the European Union.
Since March 2013, nearly 39 percent of Peru’s exports to the EU have been non-traditional, a category that includes “superfoods.” Over the past five years, around 2,300 Peruvian companies have begun exporting to the EU, at least 85 percent of which have been small and medium-sized enterprises.
According to laht.com, those companies include Ecoandino, which exports ancient organic superfoods from Peru’s Andean and Amazon regions to Europe. Thanks to the free-trade agreement, Ecoandino has expanded its reach and now exports its products to 15 European countries.
