Peruvian fruit exports to the Brazilian market have experienced a worrying decline in 2020. According to data published by Fresh Fruit, during the first three quarters of last year, shipments of fruit from Peru to Brazil fell by 64.60% over the same period of 2019 and only accounted for 1 million of the 369 million dollars Brazil spent importing fruits.
As a result of this contraction, Peru lost five positions in the ranking of Brazilian fruit suppliers, landing in the 20th position. Argentina and Chile continue to be Brazil's main suppliers, with a combined 62% share.
The Peruvian products that had the greatest participation in that market were blueberries (63%) and Brazil nuts (10%), displacing the grape, which was the main protagonist of the 2019 season.
Blueberry shipments amounted to 672,000 dollars (+ 6.20% over the same period of 2019), while Brazil nuts totaled 111,000 dollars (+ 146.70%).
The main buyers of Peruvian fruits were Right Solucao Em Comercio Internacional Ltda., with an 8% share, and Industrias Vieira Ltda, with a 6% share.
