Japan plans to increase purchase of Peruvian fruit

According to the Commercial Office of Peru in Tokyo (OCEX Tokyo) the close of negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) has generated high expectations among Japanese importers, mainly in the business of importing fresh fruit and vegetables.

The Japanese entrepreneurs are interested in learning about the tools and commitments acquired in the TPP's chapter lifting phytosanitary barriers to market more fresh Peruvian fruits, they stated.

Thus, OCEX Tokyo hopes to repeat the success obtained in the Japanese market by products such as asparagus, mango and organic bananas, and the recent entry of Peruvian avocados to China.

Currently, Peru is working to obtain access for citrus fruits (including Satsuma and Clementina mandarin varieties, Tangelo Mineola, Washington Navel oranges) table grapes -in the Red Globe, Flame Seedless, Sugarone, Thompson Seedless, and Crimson Seedless varieties-, blueberries, pomegranate, and cherimoya.

OCEX Tokyo estimates that sales of these products could amount to $25 million dollars per year by the third year of being introduced to the market.

The TPP is a multilateral trade agreement that brings together 12 countries (Peru, United States, Japan, Singapore, Canada, Vietnam, Australia, Brunei, Malaysia, Mexico, Chile and New Zealand), which together account for 40% of world GDP .
