Peru: Pomegranates, figs and blueberries for the US market

The Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation, Juan Manuel Benites, and the undersecretary of Promotion and Regulatory Programs of the Ministry of Agriculture of the United States, Edward Avalos, announced today that certain Peruvian products, such as pomegranates, figs, and blueberries, would soon be allowed to enter into the US market.

Senasa and Aphis, its counterpart in the United States, have been working since April to grant access to new Peruvian products to the northern country.

Additionally, Minister Benites said, they were working to eliminate the fumigation asparagus, which is already marketed in the United States, as it affects the product's presentation and the Peru Brand.

Edward Avalos, undersecretary of Promotion and Regulatory Programs of the Ministry of Agriculture of the United States, said that the entry of pomegranates would be implemented before the end of the year.

In turn, the head of Minagri said they had already established a pre-shipment point for the marketing of blueberries and that the fruit would be sent via containers.

After the opening of the VIII World Avocado Congress, Juan Manuel Benites stated that Peru was already sending quinoa to India, Hass avocados to China, Japan had officially opened its market to their avocados, Canada had granted permission for Peruvian blueberries last week, and two days ago the US had opened its market for Peruvian fresh chilli peppers.

"We have signed many FTAs, and they are good, but we still have a lot of work to harmonize health policies," said the senior official.
