Increase in the value of Peruvian exports of fresh blueberries

Peruvian exports of fresh blueberries have experienced a notable increase in value, reaching US$ 1,661 million between weeks 18 and 08 of the 2023/2024 campaign. This represents an increase of 16% compared to the US$ 1.438 million registered in the same period of the previous 2022/2023 campaign, according to reports from the market research company Fluctuante.

Despite this growth in the value of exports, the volume of fresh blueberries exported by Peru has seen a contraction of 22%, falling from 280.000 tons in the last campaign to 217.000 tons in the current period.

This increase in value is attributed to a significant increase in the average price of blueberries in international markets, which for the 2023/2024 campaign stood at US$ 7.59 per kilogram, reflecting an increase of 46% compared to US$ 5.19 per kilo from the previous campaign.

The report also highlighted that 95% of blueberry shipments were made by sea, followed by 4% by air and 1% by road. This panorama highlights the importance of Peruvian blueberries in international markets and the influence of prices on the total value of exports.
