Peruvian Quinoa Will Enter The Chinese Market


Peruvian quinoa is getting ready to enter China, said Gestión today. The new head of Senasa (National Service of Agrarian Health), Pedro Molina, estimated that by the end of the year a sanitary agreement will be reached for the entry of the Andean superfood to this country.

This export will benefit small agricultural producers of the regions of Cusco, Puno, Ayacucho, Huancavelica and Arequipa.

“We hope this year will be the opening of the Chinese market of Peruvian quinoa, which would be a very big incentive and a great opportunity for small producers since they would have a new market to send their products to,” said Molina to the aforementioned media.

This week a mission of Chinese officials arrived in Lima to inspect the quinoa fields and the product’s processing plants.

“After this visit, some observations will come up that will be raised by us to indicate – subsequently – what are the requirements for this superfood to enter the Chinese market”, added Molina.
