The growth of Peruvian exports has been constant in recent years and it is agricultural products that drive this successful cycle for the Peruvian economy. According to industry estimates, agricultural products in October reached USD978 million, which means a growth of 10% compared to the same month of 2020.
This growth achieved in the current season is explained by the increase in demand and the good reception that some products have had in the international market, such as blueberries (34% share) and mainly grapes (12%). In the case of blueberries, Peruvian industry exports in October reached shipments of 56,829 tons, equivalent to returns of USD 332 million, which translates into 14% of exported volume and 11% more in value, compared to the same month last season.
This increase in supply, by the Peruvian blueberry industry, has also meant a small drop in prices (3%), reaching USD5.85 per kilo.
