Tridge summary

Peruvian mango exports have seen a significant decrease of 75% in volume due to unusual weather conditions caused by El Niño and Cyclone Yaku. The industry is looking forward to recovering in the next season, which is expected to start in week 45 and end around week 13. Frutas de Piura S.A.C., a leading company in mango production, processing, and export in Piura, Peru, is taking steps to ensure a successful flowering season this year. The majority of Peruvian mango cultivation is located in Piura, with the Kent variety being the most popular. The mangoes are exported to various countries, with 60% going to Europe, 33% to the United States, and the rest to Asia and Latin America. There is potential for growth in the mango export industry, but care must be taken to avoid oversupply and maintain a consistent flow of shipments. Frutas de Piura has also highlighted the potential of the Japanese market due to the high price obtained for Peruvian mangoes.
