Export of Peruvian Raisins
A market in process
The Peruvian raisin is a market in process and there is only one company dedicated to its production. This is due to the fact that almost all the grapes in Peru are destined for fresh fruit, Peru being the fourth largest exporter of grapes in the world.
Grapes that are dehydrated are known as discarded grapes, since they do not meet the requirements for export.
In order to achieve this drying process, the water content is reduced to the maximum, leaving the grapes in the sun, a process known as solar dehydration. In Peru, raisins are imported mainly from Chile, Argentina and the United States.
The Peruvian raisin is available all year round
The production of Peruvian raisins is concentrated in the towns of Piura and Ica
