Precisely, what is most attractive about this market niche is the high level of return that is immersed in the price of these products. Due to its particular differentiation, it is obvious that the price charged is higher than that of regular, natural, or fresh products.

This is why Peruvian coffee producers have opted for organic certification, which, up to now, has allowed them to receive more income than before.

However, to make organic certification implementation processes a profitable investment, producers need to associate in order to reduce costs related to the process. It is also possible to establish a partnership with importers of organic products in order to solidify efforts.

Hence, once the global trend and the opportunities for Peru are identified, it is necessary to coordinate efforts in order to increase the number of certified organic products.

This will not only foster sustainability in agriculture, but also the efficient use of natural resources, thus allowing a competitive differentiation that could be used as a strategy for the development of Peruvian agro exports in the medium term.
