Peru's organic coffee exported to Germany, Belgium

14:48 | Villa Rica (Pasco region), Dec. 10.

Villa Rica produce keeps conquering international markets. More than 140 organic coffee producers will export 11 containers of over 200,000 kg of green coffee to foreign markets.

The shipments will reach Germany, Belgium, and Canada. Plus, this sale will exceed US$700,000. 

It should be noted the last cargo will leave the Inca country in the current month.  

In this sense, Agriculture and Irrigation Ministry's (Minagri) Sierra y Selva Exportadora (Exporting Andes and Jungle) program CEO Jose Ezeta stressed the measure promoted the communication between Oxapampa Province's coffee growers and international buyers. 

Said initiative was supported by the Competitiveness Compensation Program (Agroideas), Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru), and Peru's Trade Office (OCEX) in Los Angeles

Likewise, the product relies on an organic and fair trade certification. Thus, consumers will pay a higher price since it involves a contribution aimed at improving small- and medium-scale coffee producers' living conditions.

The official went on to add coffee growers showcased their best products at Specialty Coffee Expo 2018, the starting point of negotiations. 

Furthermore, Ezeta stressed Minagri —through the Sierra y Selva Exportadora program— is committed to working articulately in order to continue strengthening entrepreneurship of small- and medium-scale producers.
