Peru expects to continue its remarkable growth trend in blueberry volumes this coming season. If the forecast is correct, it could be the world’s largest exporter.
“We expect blueberry exports to be around 110,000 and 125,000 metric tons (MT),” said the vice president of ProArandanos.
This would be an increase over last season’s figure of 78,000MT and would be more than double the 48,000MT exported in 2017-18.
If so, Peru would probably overtake Chile as the world’s leading exporter of the fruit.
