Peru: FCE Export SAC starts off 2014 mango export campaign
Our greatest export volumes have always been shipped to the Netherlands; however, this year we are exporting to new destinations, such as the United States and Spain.
FCE Export SAC is confident they will achieve as good results this year as they did in the previous campaign. The company will export mangoes until February and continue with avocados in March.
Diana Sajami pointed out that during the 2013/2014 campaign, mango production volumes remained similar to last season’s. “A 5% growth was expected, but due to water shortages and irregular rainfall, production is now only expected to reach 110,000 tonnes, which is similar to last year’s. The harvest will come into full swing mid-November.”
For now, Edward and Tommy Atkins' mango varieties from the San Lorenzo valley are being shipped in small amounts, but the export campaign will truly begin this month with the Kent variety and will peak in early December. Mango exports will continue until April.
90% of all mango exports will be the Kent variety with 10% being the Keitt and Ataulfo. Furthermore, she stated that there are 16,500 hectares in production in Piura, 3,500 hectares in Lambayeque and 2,000 hectares in Ancash.
The main market for Peruvian mangoes is the United States (39% of the total), followed by the Netherlands (37%) and the United Kingdom (10%). Other markets include Japan, Chile, China and New Zealand, which together, represent just 3% of all exports (last season).
In 2012, Peru’s mango shipments generated US$ 155 million in revenue; a figure only surpassed by asparagus, grape and Hass avocado exports.
