Who are we?

Peruvian Association of Mango Producers and Exporters is a non-profit organization formed by the leading exporters of Peruvian mango. Since 1998, at the initiative of the main mango exporters, an export council was formed, formally created since 2000.

APEM and its members share the same objectives, and together they work towards the development and promotion of the Peruvian mango industry. APEM and its members aim to achieve the development, progress, quality improvement, and optimal commercialization of their products. 

Key benefits that APEM members obtain include the opportunity to increase their knowledge about the mango industry, especially in statistical aspects and product and process quality development. They also benefit from acquiring higher-quality goods and services at lower prices through economies of scale advantages. Lastly, they have the possibility of accessing new markets through joint business and negotiations.

Mango production is mainly concentrated in the San Lorenzo Valley in Piura; Olmos and Motupe in Lambayeque; and Casma in Ancash, highlighting the Kent, Haden, and Tommy Atkins varieties, intended for export.

These varieties are characterized by having a good amount of edible pulp, low fiber content, good color and external appearance, excellent quality, and exquisite flavor.

Peruvian mango is exported in different forms: fresh, canned, and as juice.Fresh mango being the most exported by volume.
