Peruvian blueberry export season shows a drop of 48%

According to the September update of the “Projection of the Export of Fresh Peruvian Blueberries – Campaign 2023-2024”, so far in the current campaign, Peru has been exporting 33,115 tons of fresh blueberry, which is equivalent to a decrease of 48% compared to the previous campaign.

The drop in volume has been caused mainly by the arrival of the El Niño meteorological phenomenon, which has been impacting the production rate due to an increase in temperature between 4 to 5 degrees Celsius above the historical average.

If we break down the behavior of the Peruvian industry into quarters, we see that during the months of May to July, fresh blueberry exports were reduced by 18% compared to the previous campaign, which highlights the effect of the arrival of the phenomenon of El Niño.
