New Records in Peru’s Banana Exports were reached between October 2016 and January 2017. In total, exports reached US$128.8 million, which is an increase of 7% from the same period of the year before.
A year ago, the industry experienced a 7.6% growth. The major country who imports Peru´s bananas is the Netherlands, which leads this ranking with around 33.6% of all the shipments. The United States follows closely with 30.2% of all the shipments.
Next to that, other countries such as Germany, Belgium, South Korea, Finland, Japan and many more are among those who receive Banana imports from Peru. This makes the banana one of the most popular fruits in these countries.
However, studies show that many countries are yet involved in this trade, which means that Peru has a great opportunity to expand its exports.
