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 avocados, mangoes, oranges or bananas, exotics like camu camu, physalis or chirimoyas can also be found. Most Peruvian producers are GLOBAL.G.A.P. certified and thus meet the standard for safe and sustainable production.
Peru's bio-diversity is also being reflected in its natural ingredients: reliable producers offer powders and oils from various fruits, roots and nuts as well as high-quality cereals.
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.
