Peru exported 232,683 tons of fresh mango during the 2020-2021 campaign, according to data provided by the National Agrarian Health Service (Senasa).
The fruit reached 34 international markets. The Netherlands was the main destination with 40% of the total export volume (93,000 tons), followed by the United States with a 29% share (67,478 tons).
Other destinations for Peruvian mangoes in the 2020/2021 campaign were Spain, the United Kingdom, Canada, Russia, Chile, England, Belgium, South Korea, France, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Italy, and China.
Senasa's phytosanitary support was vital for the development of the campaign, as they were responsible for the phytosanitary certification of the fields and the mango shipments; an essential requirement to export this product to any international market. The agency certified 17,998.92 hectares located mainly in Piura, Lambayeque, and Ancash that were cultivated by 6,665 small farmers.
The main mango varieties that were exported were the Ataulfo, Edward, Haden, Kafro, Keitt, Tommy, Atkins, and Kent variety; the latter is the variety that foreign consumers prefer the most.
