Peru increases blueberry exports ten-fold in seven years
Peru’s blueberry industry has come a long way in a very short time. It is now the world’s leading supplier, with exports exceeding US$470 million (66,000 tons), up from just $465,000 in 2012. The leading Peruvian exporter is Camposol SA, with US$132.6 million (28% share).
The leading importer of Peru’s blueberries is the US, although volumes dropped slightly in 2019 due to the smaller crop. The next largest markets, the Netherlands and the UK, experienced a similar trend. The major market that saw an increase in imports of Peruvian blueberries was China, with volumes up 36% in 2019.
