Fresh Peruvian bluberries are avalible for export from September to March. Dried Blueberries are available all year. Dark in colour and rich in flavour, Blueberries are an antioxidant rich 'superfood.' These healthy berries are ready to eat, versatile and great for cooking.
Blueberries now are Peru's third most valuable fresh fruit export, an impressive leap from virtually nothing less than five years ago. Demand from markets in the United States, Europe and China are helping drive this increase in production, along with fast returns on investment, high profitability, friendly trade agreements and a reputation as a consistent and quality supplier. The boom in sales of Peruvian blueberries was due to the country's increase in production and the subscription of a phytosanitary protocol for the access of the fresh fruit. In 2016, Peru became the world 's third largest exporter of blueberries.
