In 2020, Peru only exported 150 tons of aguaymanto up until September 14, i.e. 25% less than in the same period of the previous year, according to a report by Fresh Fruit.
“Shipments of this native berry from Peru have had a negative trend in recent years. The aguaymanto still hasn't reached the quality required by the international market. Furthermore, its consumption is not as widespread as that of other berries (blueberry, raspberry, or blackberry),” the consultant stated.
The main destinations for Peruvian aguaymanto in this period were the United States, with a 50% share, Israel, with 13%, Germany, with 12%, and the Netherlands, with 11%.
The main buyers were Nature's Intent Llc with 10.2%, and Mother Jungle Herbs Inc., with 8%, the report concluded.
