After signing the Protocol of Phytosanitary Requirements with Canada, the Peruvian government sent to Canada, through the Ministry of Agriculture, phytosanitary information for the entry of agricultural products to that market.In that sense, Camposol, an agro exporter business located in La Libertad, shipped its first container with blueberries to Canada, which marks the beginning of Peruvian exports to that country for big, small and medium exporters. It's worth noting that Camposol has a plant in Chao (Virú) and that the first shipment to Canada was made from this location in the presence of officials of the National Service of Agrarian Health (Senasa). "We are very proud to be the first exporters of Peruvian blueberries to Canada. We are pleased with this achievement, as it is not only Camposol's achievement but all of Peru," said Javier Morales, CEO of Camposol Fruit & Vegetable. According to information disclosed by the company, expectation are that by 2018 there will be more than three thousand hectares in production and ten thousand new jobs created by the blueberry sector.
