Peru will once again be the Official Partner Country at next year’s edition of Asia Fruit Logistica, to be held on 23-25 September 2020 in Hong Kong. Following a successful partnership at the 2019 event, the decision was taken to further strengthen the ties between Peru and Southeast Asia. As part of this agreement, Asia Fruit Logistica and its Official Partner Country Peru will be holding a series of trade events in Southeast Asia over the next few months to engage with industry partners, the first of which will be Thailand. At these events, local partners will have the opportunities to establish contacts with Peruvian suppliers and the trade show, while Peru will have the chance to demonstrate the quality of its produce and consolidate its market position. Peru exhibits every year at Asia Fruit Logistica with a national pavilion, in which it promotes its offering under the Superfoods from Peru brand, launched at Asia Fruit Logistica 2017.
Peru has had a Free Trade Agreement with China since 2010 and is now seeking out new markets in the booming Asian markets. The main products that Peru exports to Asia are table grapes, avocados, blueberries, mangoes and tangerines, but in recent times, it has added pomegranates, pecan nuts, organic bananas, frozen avocados and quinoa.
