Peru’s superfoods shine at Europe’s largest wholesale food market

Peruvian superfoods were exhibited at the symbolic Grand Palais in Paris for the 50th anniversary of the iconic Rungis, the largest wholesale market for fresh produce in the world, Peru’s Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru) has reported.

The Peruvian delegation included five companies, whose products were featured in a strategically located booth that caught the eye of more than 6,000 attendees amid renowned chefs and cooking schools present at the celebration.

Likewise, television and radio media outlets —both from France and abroad— devoted segments to the Inca country.

The presence of Peruvian businesses at Rungis was coordinated by PromPeru, France, and the Franco-Peruvian group Picaflor.

It must be noted that most fresh produce exporters at Rungis do business with major French importers of avocados, grapes, mangoes, asparagus, ginger, banana, pomegranates, and blueberries.

Peruvian representatives at the 50th anniversary celebration included Restaurante El Picaflor de Paris, Tolentino Trading (maca, soursop, and cat’s claw importer), Kuyay (organic chocolates), Laurie & Pujalt (Maras salt gourmet products), Café de Papa (Chanchamayo specialty coffees), and Pisco Intipalka.

In addition, Franco-Peruvian AllPampa showcased products of the firms it represents such as Cooperativa Cagma (Apurimac region), Candela (Lima region), Cooperativa Cecovasa (Puno region), Cooperativa Pangoa (Junin region), Cooperativa Cepresa (Lambayeque region), Cooperativa Caes (Piura region), and Agroindustrias Osho (Callao region).
