Peru is the world's leading exporter of grapes, blueberries, asparagus and quinoa

Peru continues to position itself as one of the main exporters of agricultural products in the world, being today the world's leading exporter of grapes, blueberries, asparagus (fresh and canned) and quinoa.

It is also the second largest exporter of avocado, ginger and Brazil nuts, after Mexico, China and Bolivia, respectively. Likewise, it occupies third place in the world for its palm heart export in conservation (after Ecuador and Bolivia).

In addition, Peru was positioned last year as the ninth world exporter of fruits, with sales that amounted to US$5,673 million. In Latin America, this country is the third largest fruit exporter behind Mexico and Chile.

In the first quarter of this year, Peru's agricultural exports reached US$2,481 million, a figure that represents an increase of 10,8% compared to the same period of the previous year, highlighted the Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, Elizabeth Galdo.

In this context, shipments of blueberries (which have doubled their exports), cocoa and derivatives (+82,7%), lemon and derivatives (+85,6%) stood out.

In addition, Ica (grapes, blueberries, asparagus) stood out as the main agro-exporting regions, with US$ 666 million; La Libertad (blueberry, avocado, asparagus) with US$ 386 million; and Piura (grape, mango, lemon), with US$ 273 million.
