Peruvian products - anticyclical production


The fact that more and more farms in Peru are relying on organic cultivation has now also spread to Europe. In combination with the favourable environmental conditions and the good soil, there are great opportunities for Peruvian exporters of fresh produce and natural ingredients.

Fruits like mangoes, pomegranates or limes - ideally from organic cultivation – have the best sales opportunities. This is especially true during European winter, when the Mediterranean region cannot meet European demand alone due to climatic conditions. When it comes to natural ingredients, superfoods from Peru such as maca, camu camu, yacon, sweet potato, and ginger are very popular.

If you want to export your fresh fruits and vegetables or natural ingredients from Peru to Europe, IPD can support you with its wide range of services and arrange suitable trading partners for you.


  • Targeted networking with interested importers throughout Europe
  • Careful preparation for the European market
  • Participation in European trade fairs, virtual b2b events, selling missions etc.

Fresh produce

The Peruvian variety of vegetables and fruits is very high. Due to the excellent climatic conditions and the opposite season, fresh produce can be offered for export all year round. As a fruit and vegetable producer you should take advantage of these competitive advantages.
