Fruit exports from Peru totaled US$ 4,072 million in 2020

Peruvian fruit exports went from US$2,522 million in 2017 to US$4,072 million in 2020, an increase of 61.46%, according to the Foreign Trade Management of the CCL (CCEX).

From 2017 to 2020, five agricultural products led fruit exports: fresh grapes, with a 25.96% share; blueberries (24.79%); fresh or dried avocados (18.65%); mangoes (7.14%); and mandarins (4.42%).

The agro-export dynamism has made it possible to position various Peruvian agricultural products as the main ones in a large number of international markets.


The United States is the main buyer of these fresh products, accounting for a 39% share from 2017 to 2020. Peru mainly sells blueberries (33.88%), grapes (30.27%), avocados ( 9.92%), tangerines (6.04%) and mangoes (5%), among others.

The second most important market for Peruvian fruits is the Netherlands, with a 22.56% share. For the most part, this country does not consume all that it imports, but re-exports much of it to other European countries. The most popular fruits were blueberries (27.9%), avocados (27.7%), grapes (15.1%) and mangoes (11.76%).

It is important to point out that there is an organic trend on the part of international markets. This means that there is a preference for the search for foods that have beneficial attributes for health.

Additionally, in recent years, European and North American consumers direct more attention to the origin and the cultivation of an organic product.
