Peru: An Emerging Exporter of Fruits and Vegetables
DIANE Publishing, May 1, 2011 - 32 pages
Over the past 20 years, Peru has emerged as a significant fruit and vege. exporter. The U.S. is an important market. This rise in exports was driven by advantages in climate, low prod'n. costs, and preferential trading arrangements. But because many of the same products exported by Peru are grown in the U.S., increased Peruvian exports will continue to affect U.S. growers as well as consumers. This report highlights the success stories of three commodities asparagus, processed artichokes, and table grapes that represent different impacts on U.S. growers. In order to continue on its current export trajectory, Peru must confront several constraints, incl. water access, land rights, and underdeveloped export infrastructure. A print on demand report.
