IN LIMA, A LONG CONVERSATION ON BLUEBERRIES FINISHED (FOR NOW)

Hundreds of producers and various actors of the Peruvian blueberry industry are at the JW Marriott in Lima, on August 4, on the occasion of the 5th International Seminar "Peru and the blueberry industry: Towards technical, productive consolidation and commercial ”.

It was a meeting that had the characteristic of closing the cycle of International Seminars organized by Blueberries Consulting and AGQ Labs & Technological Services, and that began in Chile on April 28, to continue in Guadalajara on a double day on June 28 and 29.

Lima was the perfect closure, due to the high level of the issues discussed and because we noted the remarkable development of the Peruvian blueberry industry, with a growth rate that can make Peru one of the important players in the international market.

We appreciate the great reception in Lima, both from the private world and from the public apparatus, which have always been very receptive to sharing new knowledge and information regarding the industry, which is the main objective of our international events.

A long and good conversation ended in Lima, which we will surely return to in the short term and to which we leave guests.
