“China has extensive agricultural experience”, said Fabiola Muñoz, head of the ministry of agriculture. She added that in Peru noodles are made mostly from wheat, a product the country imports. This is why they want to use native potatoes to make noodles.
During a meeting in China with Chinese Vice Minister of Agriculture, Li Jinxiang, they discussed several products they can cooperate on.
“Muñoz also highlighted the variety of potatoes that Peru has, which could be sent to China pre-cooked, frozen or processed into chips, purée, and other innovative presentations,” said Gestión.
“We have a great variety of potatoes – more than 3,000 genetic varieties – that make us unique, and we are mainly looking to export fresh potatoes and potato-based products,” said the Peruvian authority.
