Peru: Will 2023 continue to be a difficult year for fresh blueberries?

2023 could be just as complex as 2022 for the Peruvian fresh blueberry, which is just a few months away from completing its campaign. This is due to the main effects on the markets caused by conflicts abroad. During the first week of 2023, 4,708 tons were exported, which meant a 28% decrease compared to the same period last season. Despite this, to date, Peru has been exporting a total of 301,389 tons, 27% more than the previous season.
One of the main objectives this year is to be able to double shipments to certain places where the Peruvian blueberry does not have as much participation, Israel being one of the main countries. Likewise, the focus of attention has been placed on the Asian market, where the opening of countries such as Indonesia and South Korea is sought. So far this season, the main destination for this product has been the United States, with a 55% share, followed by the Netherlands, with 25%.

Regarding the North American market, it has received 165,668 tons of Peruvian blueberries. 54% have left from the port of Paita and 45% through Callao. As for the Dutch, they have acquired 75,488 tons, and they have received it from the same points as the Americans.

Regarding the Peruvian exporting companies of this fruit, the one that remains in first place is Camposol SA, with a participation of 15%. This company has dispatched 65% of all its shipments through the port of Callao.
