Lima, 7th October 2021. Once again this year, Expoalimentaria Perú (Peru Food Fair) is taking place. The Peruvian agrifood fair is organised by the Peruvian Exporters Association (ADEX) and supported by Promperú. Just like in 2020 and due to the international situation, the most important food fair in Latin America and Peru is being held virtually.
Since last Thursday, 30 September, and up until 8 October, agrifood professionals from around the world will be able to get to know the 204 exhibitor companies, hold business meetings and attend the many activities organised on the digital platform. An ambitious event, which brought together more than 500 buyers last year, generating more than two thousand business meetings.
This specialised fair which is now into its third edition acts as a promotional showcase for Peru´s export offer to the world. The main Peruvian products include superfoods such as quinoa, maca, chestnuts and sacha inchi as well as fresh products such as mango, avocado, ginger, grape and cranberry. Foods such as cacao and its derivatives, as well as processed products, fish products and alcoholic beverages such as pisco, the emblematic national drink, complete the offer.
The event is also the perfect setting for exporters who are looking to get a foothold in the Peruvian market. This year 5 Spanish companies are participating in the event. Spain is also the third most important target market for Peruvian agrifood exports. Its value stood at
459.13 million Euros in 2020, 12.1% more compared to the previous year. The most successful Peruvian products in Spain are mainly avocado, asparagus, grapes and mango. Not only is it the fourth top market for exports of ginger, receiving 1100 tonnes in 2020, it is also a major importer of chestnuts and Peruvian quinoa, and has received 781 tonnes of the latter so far in 2021.
Quality Peruvian products, all present in the virtual exhibition and grouped into the different pavilions: ‘Agroindustry’, ‘Capiscum’, ‘Cacao’, ‘Coffee’, ‘Containers and Packaging’, ‘Fruit and Vegetables’, ‘Beans’ and ‘Pisco’.
Also, and as a new addition this year, the fair is hosting the national pavilions of Argentina and Indonesia, an example of Peru´s good international collaboration with other agrifood powers.
