“This time around, Peru's business objective at Fruit Logistica will be to achieve 200 million USD in prospective business for the next 12 months and to generate 6,000 business contacts with the Peruvian delegation, in addition to consolidating a diversified and quality exportable supply,” stated the executive president of PROMPERÚ, Amora Carbajal.
“The sustainability of the Peruvian exportable supply will be a differentiating element at the fair. This is a focus that has been developing within our society and within the business models of Peruvian agro-export companies, improving their competitiveness and reducing environmental impacts through responsible water management, efficient carbon footprint management and fair trade strategies,” said the head of PROMPERÚ.
Fruit Logistica 2022 made it possible to consolidate the position of the Super Food Peru, Pisco, Spirit of Peru and Cafés del Perú brands. The commercial promotion campaign included activations and sampling of exotic fruits and specialty coffees in the national pavilion, in addition to pisco tastings, and typical regional dances.
The delegation led by PROMPERÚ was made up of the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MIDAGRI), Sierra and Selva Exportadora, Agro Ideas, the Embassy of Peru in Germany, directors of unions and the Association of Agricultural Producer Unions of Peru (AGAP).
Peruvian food sector exports to the European Union in 2021 reached 3,432 billion USD, growing by more than 13%.
