Peru: Grape exports up to August amounted to U.S. $130 million

Grape exports during the first eight months of the year amounted to U.S. $ 130 million, a 10% increase over the same period last year, said the Foreign Trade Society of Peru (ComexPerú ), in its latest weekly information for October 21 to 27 this year.

During the given period, Peruvian grapes reached 45 destinations, among which China, which represents 22% of total exports, with a total value of U.S. $28 million and an increase of 153% over the same period of 2012, stands out. The next position is occupied by Hong Kong, which despite having a 25% fall, reached a value of U.S. $26 million. Not far behind is the United States, with a total of U.S. $16 million, receiving 13% of Peruvian shipments of grapes.

A case in point is South Korea, a country to which, due to the establishment of a phytosanitary agreement, Peru exported U.S. $9 million in 2012, ranking tenth in the ranking of grapes destination country. In that sense, Peru expects to sign a phytosanitary protocol with Japan so that they can secure an attractive target market.

Additionally, according to some exporters, this year’s grape exports are expected to grow 20%.

Among the major companies that exported grapes in the January-August period of 2013 are El Pedregal SA, with a value of U.S. $19 million ( -4% ) and Complejo Agroindustrial Beta SA , with U.S. $17 million ( -33% ) . It should also be noted that Challapampa SAC Agricultural Company, recorded grape exports totaling U.S. $8 million, 163% more than in the same period last year.
