Peru's agro-export sector is working with the support of the National Agrarian Health Service (Senasa) to carry out phytosanitary adaptation processes to achieve access to new markets for several of their star agro-export products.
Mango is one of the products with the most opportunities and the country is working so it can enter Argentina, Iran, Malaysia, Morocco, South Africa, and Taiwan.
Currently, the largest markets for this fruit are the Netherlands, the United States, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Russia. However, according to the latest Fresh Fruit Report, the 2021-2022 mango campaign, although improving, is still below pre-pandemic levels.
According to the Association of Agricultural Producers Guilds of Peru (AGAP), another product that aims to enter more markets is blueberry, which, after having entered Malaysia and India in 2021, is in the process of being adapted to export to South Africa, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
In addition, Peruvian blueberries are very close to entering the Israeli market for the first time. Israel is already carrying out a phytosanitary review process to mitigate the risk of pests, as SENASA sent a proposal for mitigation measures to the Israeli authorities.
Currently, one of the biggest destinations for blueberries is the Netherlands, where it is distributed to the rest of Europe. However, according to Gabriel Amaro, executive director of AGAP, prices have decreased in these markets because there is an oversupply of that and other Peruvian fruits in them, reducing the producers' profitability.
In addition, according to AGAP, Hass avocado is in the process of entering Malaysia, the Philippines, and Colombia.
In addition, the country is working so that grapes, asparagus, citrus, kion, and pitahaya have access to a total of 18 new destinations soon.
