    Export volumes already reach 5,000 tons
    Peruvian avocado exports to China increase by 62%
    date: 5/17/2019

    According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation, through Senasa, the region of Ayacucho region, in the south of the country, has exported 5 thousand tons of Hass avocados to China.

    The main production area in the Ayacucho region is the Torobamba Valley, followed by the Huanta-Luricocha Valley and the Vilcashuaman-Chincheros production zone.

    Even though the export season goes from January to June, the quantity that has already been sent exceeds by 62% the volume sent to the Asian market in the same date of the year 2018.

    The Minagri Agrarian Health Authority is in charge of certifying the production sites, the sealing of the vehicles that transport the cargo to the processing plants, and the phytosanitary certification for export.

    In order to comply with the requirements demanded by China in this sanitary field, SENASA specialists carry out phytosanitary inspection in the farms and sample 2% of the lot to verify that the product is free of the quarantine pests that prevent it from being exported, such as the fruit fly and the Stenoma catenifer moth.

    Peru: Avocado exports will be similar to last year's
    This year Peru will export some 335 thousand tons of Hass avocado, a similar volume to the one it dispatched in the previous campaign, stated the president of the Association of Hass Avocado Producers of Peru (ProHass), Daniel Bustamante Canny.

    He said avocado production would be the same as in 2018 because of a decrease in yields of mature plantations and productive increases in young plantations, which would balance the production.

    However, the president of ProHass said that the 2019 campaign would last more because the new plantations -mainly in the north of the country- begin to produce earlier.

    "In the previous campaigns the important shipping volumes started in May, now there will be an increase in volumes in April. This is a very positive thing as we won't create any peaks in the market and there will be a more stable supply in the world," he added.

    Better market conditions
    Bustamante, who is also the commercial manager of Agricola Cerro Prieto (ACP), said that both Asia and the United States would receive higher volumes of Peruvian Hass avocados this year. He said that the market in Asia was new and growing, and that the United States production was expected to decrease, so there would be more orders for Peruvian avocados.

    "Those two markets will take some of the fruit that would have been destined for Europe and that could complicate this market. There will also be less avocado supply in Europe because South Africa will also have a reduction in its production. In general, we expect better market conditions than last year," he said.

    Peru hopes to enter South Korea and Thailand this year
    Daniel Butamante also said that ProHass had been working closely with the National Agrarian Health Service (Senasa) with the aim of achieving the entry of Hass avocados from Peru to Southeast Asian countries, such as South Korea and Thailand this year. However, he added, there are still some points that the phytosanitary authorities must resolve.

    The president of ProHass also highlighted the presence of Peruvian Hass avocado at the Fruit Logistica 2019 fair that took place from February 6 to 8 in Berlin (Germany), where it had an important participation and many buyers from all over the world expressed interest in this product.
