The exponential growth of the Peruvian blueberry industry may slow down at some point, but it seems almost impossible for the production and export of Peruvian blueberries to stop increasing in the immediate future.
The general director of Proarándanos, Luis Miguel Vegas, made it very clear that the Peruvian industry will continue to grow steadily. He recently gave a detailed account of the state of the Peruvian industry, in its production levels. In its economic returns, which reached USD 1.400 million; and in its growth projection, set at 340,000 to 360,000 tons for the 2023/2024 campaign, of which around 15% will correspond to organic blueberries.
Official data shows that the blueberry has become the main product in the agricultural export basket of Peru, leading a list in which it has surpassed grapes, coffee, avocados, mango and other products that have historically led the country's exports.
