"China will displace Canada as the fourth largest market"

Peru: Citrus exports to China increased by 51%

In the 2018 campaign, Peruvian citrus exports amounted to 180,239 tons, i.e. 8% more than the 166,616 tons exported in 2017, said the general manager of the Citrus Producers Association of Peru (ProCitrus), Sergio del Castillo Valderrama.

The main market was the United States with 67,001,924 kilos (37% of the total). Shipments to this country increased by 20% over 2017. It was followed by the United Kingdom with 37,288,973 kilos (21% of the total), i.e. 4% less than in the previous year.

The Netherlands ranked third with 23,659,327 kilos of citrus fruit (13% of the total), i.e. 4% less than in the previous year. Canada ranked fourth with 14,459,634 kilos (8% of the total) and 2% more than in the previous year, and China ranked fifth with 10,242,853 kilos (6%), i.e. 51% more than in the previous year.

"I have no doubt that over time China will displace Canada as the fourth largest market for Peruvian citrus," the union spokesman said.
