Peruvian Cocoa & Coffee for the World



The diversity of climates, soils, precipitation and sunlight constitute a favorable scenario for the cultivation of alternative products. These virtues give Peru different ecological levels, that with the help of our farmers we have been able to harvest such marvelous products as coffee and cocoa.

Both crops are oriented to satisfy the needs of present and future generations, guaranteeing profitability, health of the environment, social and economic equity. It is for this reason that Expoalimentaria from the hand of institutions such as DEVIDA, USAID and TECHNOSERVE maintain their work in the promotion of these alternative products; dedicating a space so that attendees can dialogue with the producers, observe the process of transformation and can also enjoy the different derivatives of international quality that are presented in the Pavilion.
