According to recent data from the Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation (Midagri), Peru's agricultural exports continue their upward trend. In the first half of this year (January-June), these sales totaled US$4.293 billion, an increase of 25.1% compared to the same period in 2021.
Traditional agricultural exports totaled US$461 million, up 288.2% from June 2021, due to higher exports of unroasted coffee without decaffeination (US$435 million) and cane molasses (US$3.8 million), whose sales increased 365% and 14.6%, respectively. These two products accounted for 95% of Peru's traditional agricultural exports in said month.
The products that stood out in the agricultural-exports ranking in said period were fresh grapes, which totaled US$595 million and accounted for 15.5% of total sales; avocados (US$518 million; 13.5%), fresh mangoes (US$208 million; 5.4%); fresh cranberries (US$147 million; 3.8%) and frozen mangoes (US$125 million; 3.3%).
