On September 25, the Superfoods Perú Natura business conference was held, which culminated in commercial commitments of $42.2 million US dollars, according to the Promotion Commission of Peru for Exports and Tourism (Promperú).
Fruit pulps, as well as sacha inchi, noni, camu camu and cereals, were some of the most demanded products by foreign buyers, according to information from Gestión.
“According to Promperú, the 70 buyers made 854 business contacts with more than 75 small and medium producers in Arequipa, Cusco, Junín, Lima, Puno and San Martín. This wheel generated $2.8 million US dollars more than initially projected”, the aforementioned media said.
Buyers from South Korea, as well as those from China, were interested in Peruvian products and appreciated the offer with added value, such as cereals. In the same way, Mexico and Colombia, whose delegations were the most numerous, also showed their satisfaction with what was offered during the meeting.
Aguaymanto pulps, frozen blueberries, roasted inchi sacha, preserved peppers, quinoa breakfast cereals, yacon jams, and cocoa nibs coated with yacon and lucuma were other products preferred by entrepreneurs.
