Tridge summary

In 2023, Peru's agricultural exports soared to USD 10,202 million, marking a 4.2% increase from the previous year and securing a 15.8% share of the country's total exports, despite a global 5% decline in goods exports. This growth positioned agroexports as the second largest export sector in Peru, primarily driven by high demand for grapes and blueberries in key markets such as the United States, the European Union, Ecuador, China, and Chile. The sector's remarkable expansion since 2000 is attributed to a broader market reach, an increase in the number of exporting companies, and a diversified export portfolio. Peru has also emerged as a global leader in several agricultural products. A collaborative effort involving strategic allies like RR, EE., Midagri, PromPerú, IICA, INIA, and Senasa, supported by sponsors such as BCP, Trupal, Acfrup, Gastaldi Perú, Scharff, and Ecowax, underscores a comprehensive strategy aimed at fostering further growth, innovation, and sustainability in the agricultural sector.
