Peru: Permanent increase in grape production

The production of table grapes in Peru continues to increase. In 2012 the harvest was nearly 300,000 tonnes, 3% more than in 2011. This development, which is noticeable in all production regions, is associated with an annual acreage increase of 5 to 10%. In 2011 the acreage was 16.500ha. The industry is set on a future acreage of 20.000ha.

With 305,000 tonnes, the yield this year hasn’t improved that much. This is due to adverse weather conditions (cold and little rain). Production, however, has not delayed. In the second half of November, a fair share of table grapes from Peru will be available on the European market. The European market is the largest with about 40,000 tonnes. The United States accounted for 25.400 tonnes in 2012 and there is also a significant share heading for Asia. Total exports amounted to 150,000 to 170,000 tonnes of production.
