Peru

Diversity of South America

Timber like no other. Exotic fruit and vegetables, superfoods, natural extracts, fatty oils – Peru has much to offer Europe.
Whether in the Andes, in the rainforest or on the coast  – a wide variety of agricultural products are available. And often in the best organic quality. In addition to such classics as mangoes, oranges, bananas or avocados, exotics like camu camu, physalis or chirimoyas can also be found. Most Peruvian producers are GLOBALG.A.P. certified and thus meet the standard for safe and sustainable production.

In regard to the timber sector Peru can boast of having the second-largest share in the Amazon rainforest and, by international comparison, significant forested areas with a low deforestation rate. Of interesting potential are lesser-known types of wood which are rarely used commercially and have not been available for German companies until now. These have characteristics that are similar to those of well-known tropical hardwoods and are therefore an attractive alternative for outside uses. 
Another plus: many suppliers now offer certified products from sustainable forestry.

The Import Promotion Desk has chosen Peru as one of its partner countries and will set you up with carefully selected and tested suppliers.

OUR PRODUCT GROUPS FROM PERU:

Fresh fruit and vegetables:

  • from mangoes, maracujas to grapes in excellent product quality, some with organic certification
  • ginger is an upcoming product segment from the Andes and a good alternative to ginger from China.

Fruit Logistica 2022: Diversity from Africa

Tropical fruits, fresh herbs and a large selection of vegetables
The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) highlights the potential of trade partnerships with producers from Egypt, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Morocco

Bonn/Berlin, 15.03.2022 – The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) presents tropical fruits, fresh herbs and a large selection of vegetables – partly in organic quality – from its African partner countries at Fruit Logistica, which takes place in Berlin from 5th to 7th April. The producers from Egypt, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, and Morocco have been carefully selected by IPD experts and are certified according to international standards such as GLOBALG.A.P.

"As an import promotion initiative, we make sure that the companies in the IPD program meet the quality requirements of European buyers and can supply necessary trade volumes", says Dr Julia Bellinghausen, head of IPD. "Other good arguments for importing from Africa are its seasons, the associated strategically favourable harvest periods for fruit and vegetables, as well as short distances."

At this year's Fruit Logistica, IPD supports around 24 producers from developing and emerging countries – in addition to African exporters, also companies from Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.

Survey among importers: Successful matchmaking through IPD

European importers appreciate the support of Import Promotion Desk (IPD) in finding suppliers and initiating business deals
Bonn/Berlin, 10.11.2021 – Sourcing, contact brokering, closing deals – Import Promotion Desk (IPD) successfully brings European importers together with producers from developing countries and emerging nations. This has been shown in a survey among importers who have worked with IPD: Almost three quarters of the respondents state that they have al-ready concluded a business deal with companies from the IPD programme. 60 percent of the importers surveyed have already included suppliers recommended by IPD with whom they have concluded a business deal in their buying portfolio. "Creating long-term trade re-lations with a sustainable effect for upcoming entrepreneurs in developing and emerging countries is the aim of IPD," says Dr Julia Bellinghausen, head of IPD.

Success Stories

 
Success Story

Legal and sustainable tropical timber from Peru

The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) and its partners in Peru support responsibly operating companies in their efforts to export certified timber products to Europe. An essential part of IPD’s work is to create awareness of European quality and sustainability standards in Peru’s private and public sectors. At the same time, the IPD provides German importers with an alternative buying market, which will allow them to optimise their purchasing activities and increase their product variety. In this way, international development cooperation and import promotion go hand in hand.

 
Success Story

Tropical timber from sustainably managed forests

IPD OPENS UP NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR PERUVIAN TIMBER EXPORTERS ON THE EU MARKET

The tropical rainforest is at risk from overexploitation and fire clearance, and this has brought trading in tropical timber into disrepute. Timber companies from countries like Peru therefore encounter difficulties in exporting their tropical wood products to the EU market. They are supported by the Import Promotion Desk (IPD), the precondition being that their timber is verifiably sourced from legal and sustainable forestry. Maderacre Rio Acre SAC is a company that meets the criteria of the FSC, demonstrating in practice that responsible forest management can help to protect the rainforest.
