Peru easily maintains leading position in China’s blueberry market
December 17, 2019

This is the time of year when large volumes of imported fruit enter the Chinese market. Everybody knows about the growing import of cherries, but blueberries are also very popular in the Chinese market.

"The domestic production volume of Chinese blueberries is limited. Imported blueberries maintain a favorable position in the blueberry market in China. Argentina has just received permission this year to begin blueberry exports to China. They do not yet have an impact on our sales figures. This is because blueberries from Argentina have not yet secured a share of the Chinese fruit market, and because both Peru and Chile already occupy a strong market position." Most of the imported blueberries available on the Chinese market come from Peru and Chile."

Wei Yuyou of Jiaxing Your Home Fruit Import & Export Co., Ltd. (hereafter 'Your Home') recently talked about the conditions in the blueberry market: "This year the import volume of blueberries and the domestic market demand both increased. Furthermore, the product quality of Peruvian blueberries is high and the sugar content is stable. We already sold 47 shipping containers of Peruvian blueberries in the period up to September 20th."

In addition to Peruvian blueberries, Your Home also imports blueberries from Chile. Mr. Wei explained the differences between the two blueberry varieties: "Peru and Chile are the two largest producers of blueberries for the Chinese market. The production seasons of these two countries perfectly match with the Chinese market demand for blueberries. The blueberries from Peru enter the Chinese market slightly early, from the Chinese perspective. Chilean blueberries enter the Chinese market closer to the holidays. Chinese market demand for blueberries continues to grow every year. We are optimistic and determined to break our sales record of 100 shipping containers. This close to the holidays, Your Home mainly promotes blueberries and cherries. This is the golden season for such high-end products. We occupy a strategically located booth in the Jiaxing Market and our enthusiastic sales team have created strong retail channels. Your Home also sells fruit shopping districts across Shanghai. Your Home occupies excellent shopping units that cover around 200-600 square meters. These are well-managed stores with a retail volume that can exceed 150 thousand during peak sales season."
