Peru’s blueberry exports down 25%

Mon 04/09/2023 by Richard Wilkinson

Peru has not enjoyed a happy 2023-2024 blueberry campaign. Proarándanos reports that up to the last week of July, Peru had exported 10,000 tons of this fruit, which represented a 25% drop compared to the same period last year. The fall has been attributed to a smaller crop due to the high temperatures induced by the El Niño weather phenomenon. 

One of the most affected varieties is Ventura, with 6,000 hectares planted throughout Peru, accounting for around 35% of Peru’s total blueberry exports. Biloxi is another key variety.
