Non-traditional exports to the United States would record an expansion between 8% and 9% this year, driven by the country’s exports, revealed today the Director of Export Promotion Promperú, Ricardo Limo Del Castillo.
“In the case of the United States, they are basically driven by the export sector. Here, the main export products that stand out are blueberries, avocados and tangerines,” said Agencia Andina.
It means that Peruvian companies have made significant investments in the production chain in recent years, which allows them to carry high levels of traditional growth.
In this sense, he stated that Peruvian companies have enormous potential to continue increasing the levels of trade with the North American giant.
“Gastronomy represents a great opportunity for growth. We see strength, for example, in pickles well received by the North American market,” he noted.
Next, officials revealed that non-traditional shipments to Canada registered an expansion of close to 5%, also driven by the agricultural sector.
However, he noted that in recent years hydrobiological products have taken up more and more space in the export market to Canada.
“Now in Canadian food, it goes to the share of fishing. Therefore, fish for human consumption, such as mahi mahi, shrimp and trout, have registered a significant demand,” he pointed out.
The year is 2022
As reported by the Peruvian Promotion Commission for Exports and Tourism (Promperú), exports from non-mining energy to the United States reached 6007 million dollars in 2022, showing an increase of 19.6%.
The US represented the main destination of agricultural resources with 3,414 million dollars, for miscellaneous manufacturing (1,276 million), textiles and clothing (1,007 million) and fishing and aquaculture (263 million).
“Cows, fresh grapes, asparagus, raw coffee, avocados, squash, scabies and artichokes, and t-shirts are mostly produced by Americans,” he said.
Shipments to Canada reached 458 million dollars last year, which represented an increase of 5%.
As far as he had said, the agricultural sector was the one that had the largest participation with 243 million dollars, followed by fishing with 116 million and textiles with 60 million.
“Among the main exported products are fresh grapes, roasted coffee, t-shirts, frozen scabies, frozen strawberries, blueberries, scabies and quinoa,” he noted.
