Ecosac builds second fruit packing plant

Peru: Ecosac to export grapes to the UK and the Middle East

The agro-industrial company Ecosac (formerly known as Ecoacuícola), is planning to set up its second fruit packing plant in the country for exporting purposes, as reported by the president of the firm, Mario Mustafá.

"We will set it up next year in Jayanca, in the department of Lambayeque, to be able to export the products from our plantations there, such as mangoes, avocados and grapes. This will allow us to continue growing with these products," he stated.

He stated that the said plant should be operational by late 2014. The investment made in it has been estimated at 4 million dollars. It is worth noting that the company already has a packing plant in Piura.

The executive also mentioned that the company's plantations continue expanding every year. 400 hectares of grapes are being developed in Piura, in which 20 million dollars have been invested. There are also 150 new hectares for avocados, among other crops.

"We increase the acreage in accordance with the levels of demand," he said. He stressed that the firm is chiefly oriented towards the export market when it comes to fruit, and in the case of the domestic market, the main products are corn and sugar cane. "We seek to diversify our range and grow in all areas," he added.

He mentioned that two new export markets will be added this year to the forty it already has: the UK and the Middle East, where grapes are to be shipped.
