Peru's Foreign Trade and Tourism Ministry (Mincetur) hopes to get European Union’s support to facilitate access of Peruvian superfoods to the bloc, by proposing liberalization on the entry of new products like Andean grains and blueberries.

Superfood Exports

“Peruvian superfoods' exports have plenty of space to conquer the Swedish and European market in general. We plan to propose that the European Union liberalizes the still restricted access for new Peruvian products,” Mincetur’s head Eduardo Ferreyros said.

Maca and Quinoa

The range of Peruvian superfoods includes Andean grains such as maca, quinoa, kiwicha, tarwi and cañihua, as well as blueberries.

The Minister noted trade opportunities that both countries might take advantage of during the meeting “Sweden does business in Peru.” 

Peruvian exports to Sweden amounted to US$115 million in 2015, while imports totalled US$222 million.

Sweden

Peru’s main exports to Sweden include copper, coffee, asparagus, grapes, tangelos oranges and wood.   

Likewise, the European country comprises about 0.3% of total foreign direct investment (FDI) flows into Peru, totaling US$66.6 million between 1980 and 2015.
