Peruvian avocado production to grow in 2014
The group attributed the expected growth to increased plantings in zones such as Virú and Chao in the La Libertad department, which lies on the country's north-central coast.
The growth percentage for export values is set to be even higher at 30.1%, with expectations Peru will ship 120,000MT of the fruit at a value of US$204 million.
The consultancy highlighted strong demand for the product in China, Japan and Chile.
In 2013, production has increased 17.2% along with a 15.5% rise in exports.
