The sharp drop in production and export volume of the Peruvian blueberry industry in the current campaign has had a notable impact on the US market. As a consequence of this prices of the product have gone up sharply, almost doubling its value compared to the same date of the previous year.

According to Agronometrics reports, blueberry prices in the US market have remained high in recent weeks, rising up to USD 44,75 per package, significantly higher than what was achieved in the previous season.

These prices can be maintained for several weeks, up to and including Christmas, because currently the contribution of Mexico, its natural supplier, is relatively modest and only guarantees a small constant flow of blueberries to the US market due to its proximity.
