In the 2023/2024 export campaign, Peru's table grape exports started a month early due to an earlier harvest, leading to a shipment of 516,185 tons valued at $1,554 million. This marked a 13% decrease in volume but a 6% increase in value compared to the previous season, with grapes selling at an average of $3.01 per kilogram.

The United States, the Netherlands, and China were the primary export destinations, experiencing various changes in volume and value.
