The Peruvian Promotion Authority for Export and Tourism is witnessing how Peruvian avocados are gaining popularity in the Indian market. Although the epidemic has shrunk the Indian economy, the market has not been affected by its consumption of fruits and vegetables.
According to Promperú’s Business Office in India eight Peruvian companies have been exporting avocados to the country for a total of US $ 507,286 between January and June 2021, indicating 162% growth over the same period in 2020. In the first six months of last year, five Peruvian exporters shipped avocados for $ 193,326.
According to the International Business Intelligence Agency (Mintel), this expansion in 2021 will be driven by new changes in consumer behavior, affecting food purchases such as natural, organic products, products high in protein, vitamins and goods with high fiber content.
