Peru exported a total of 127,114 tons of mango between November 2020 and January 2021, i.e. 15% less than in the same period of the previous season, according to the president of the consulting firm Inform@cción, Fernando Cilloniz.

In November 2020, Peru exported 9,000 tons of fresh mango (10,000 tons in November 2019). In December 2020, the country shipped 41,576 tons (52,817 tons in December 2019), and in January 2021 it exported 76,538 tons (85,465 tons in January 2020).

“Historically, Peru makes its largest shipments of fresh mango in January. However, the export volume in January of this season decreased by nearly 9,000 tons over the same month of last season. That's not good news," he said.

The main destination markets for Peru's fresh mango are the Netherlands and the United States. They are followed by Spain, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Korea, Canada, Russia, and Chile, among others.

The Peruvian Association of Mango Producers and Exporters (APEM) forecasted the country would export nearly 207,000 tons of fresh mango in the 2020/2021 season, i.e. 12% less than the 235,000 tons shipped in the previous season. This drop is due to the decrease in production caused by the delays of up to two weeks in flowering because of the low temperatures there were in mid-2020, and the drought issues in October, particularly in the northern part of the country.

Agronometrics in Charts: Demand for berries skyrockets in 2021

This time for the ‘In Charts’ series we will give an update as to how the average prices of berries have been behaving. Specifically, we will look at the prices of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries in the United States market and compare them with previous seasons. An increase in demand, brought on by the tendency to consume “superfoods” such as berries during the Covid-19 pandemic, seem to have pushed prices up despite the fact that volumes imported by the United States have been similar or higher than those of previous years. Let's look at each particular case: Blueberries Blueberry prices experienced a significant increase from week 3 of 2021, showing the highest prices of the last 5 seasons for the same date. If we observe the following chart, we can see that, for week 7 of 2021, the average price of conventional blueberries was $7.60 per kilo. This is 24 percent higher than in 2020 when the average price was $6.14 per kilo. Volumes for blueberr

Overview of the Peruvian blueberry season, complemented by charts from Agronometrics.   Original published in   on November 25, 2020  This year's Peruvian blueberry season began in June with the export of 1,010 tons worth 5 million dollars. These figures represented a 25% increase in volume and a 77% increase in value over the same month of 2019. The lower production in the northern hemisphere due to weather problems allowed producers to achieve attractive prices of $ 5.15 per kilogram in June.

In this month, the increase in the Peruvian supply generated a slight 3% fall in the typical prices of the month,

Tight raspberry volumes make for more “normal” pricing

Overview of the raspberry supply by Ben Escoe of Twin River Berries, complemented by charts from Agronometrics. Original published in   on May 12, 2021  “They’re starting to pick up, but it’s been tight--really tight,” says Ben Escoe of Twin River Berries in Portland, OR, noting this largely has to do with the weather conditions in Mexico. “It’s been cold and windy there which has caused damage in the fields and contributed to the low supply. Year over year, the volume is comparable or even better. But demand is high and forecast to actual supply has been lower.” Mexico grows raspberries for most of the year, stopping only for the rainy season which begins at the end of June or early July. Meanwhile California’s volume won’t really begin until the middle to the end of May. Volumes (in Kg) of raspberries from Mexico in the US Market​ Source: USDA Market News via Agronometrics .
