The Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Tourism (OCEX) in Tokyo participating in events and trade fairs, such as “Foodex”, with the objective of helping national companies to export organic bananas to the Japanese market.



The opportunity to export bananas arises as the result of a drought in the Philippines – the main supplier of bananas to Japan – affecting both the supply and price.


According to OCEX Tokyo, Peru has exported USD 4 million worth of organic bananas to Japan, which is a substantial increase compared to 2014 with USD 2.9 million.
