According to the general manager of the Association of Producers of Citrus of Peru, the country could export 192 thousand tons of citrus this year, i.e. 15% more than the 167 thousand tons it dispatched in the previous season.
He said this projection was greater than the one ProCitrus had made at the beginning of the year, which considered there would be a 10% increase in exports this year.
“This increase is due to the good start that the campaign has had with the early varieties and a larger volume expected from the late varieties.” he said.
There had been an increase in exports of the Primosol variety, which went from 2,300 tons (110 containers) in 2017 to 4,000 tons (190 containers) this year.
