Small and medium Peruvian producers will participate from March 12 to the 14, 2019, at the Anufood Brazil 2019 fair, which will be held in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, within the framework of the Anuga, a German fair devoted to the food and food and drinks sector.
Guillermo Parodi Macedo, an official of Sierra and Selva Exportadora, said that Peruvian entrepreneurs were expected to articulate their products with world fairs and have close experience with international trade and interact with buyers from different countries.
In this fair, the specialist said, Peru will offer quinoa, granadilla, dehydrated aguaymanto, maca, avocado, and samples of dehydrated mushrooms that come from communities that have worked sustaining forests.
The diversity of products that Peru has is remarkable and the country needs to take advantage of it, but it must also work to be competitive, said the official of the agency attached to the Ministry of Agriculture (Minagri).
Jonathan Contreras Gavino, a producer of quinoa who will be attending Anufood Brazil 2019, stated that the Apoqua and Aspagro associations -which includes 400 producers from Ayacucho, Huamanga, Acosvinchos, and Tambillo- produce nearly a thousand tons a year and have organic certification since 2013, which allows them to offer their products in the North American and European markets.
According to Jonathan Contreras and the associations that he represents, participating in this fair is an opportunity to have direct contact with buyers.
