Peru, Superfoods Territory
Peru has become an essential supplier of a wide variety of the planet’s food, thanks to its exceptional natural environment and geographical location on the west coast of South America.
This is one of the reasons for the dynamism of its agricultural industry, whose processes meet the quality and safety standards required by international markets.
The country has an adequate installed capacity, state-of-the-art technology and, above all, respect for the environment in line with sustainability criteria. Its main agricultural products include fruit and vegetables which are of excellent quality throughout the year and are known for their superb flavour, colour, and aroma. These products are strategically exported in out of season periods to the northern hemisphere.
Peru is also one of the countries that has contributed the most to feeding the world, with crops products that have become global products such as potatoes, tomatoes, corn, and peppers.
Furthermore, Peruvian companies have international certifications such as ISO, HACCP, TESCO, BRC, among others. They also comply with strict rules of good agricultural practices (Global Gap) under the supervision of the health authorities in the primary markets.
The main exports to the European market are grapes, mangoes, citrus fruits, avocados, organic bananas, blueberries, pomegranates, and ginger, among others. Peru is a leading country in the export of asparagus, peppers, and paprika, and holds top spots in the ‘Premium’ products category with specialty coffees and cocoa.
Super Foods from Peru have a lot to offer to the world with delicious, healthy and nutritious products, which improve people’s lives and make the world a better place.
