Welcome to Sun Fruits Exports S.A.
Ica Valley, Peru
Two traditional families from Iquique decided to get involved in the production chain and to plan the exportation of their products from the countryside to the most demanding international markets, thus creating the Sun Fruits Group. These families integrated a modern processing plant for their lands production that would satisfy their own needs, provide services to other producers and contribute to the development of the national fruit growing and agricultural industry.
This growth has allowed to generate new sources of income, directly, to more than 1,000 families, and to contribute not only to the domestic economy but also to access to education and professional training levels.
As result, we have helped small and medium sized agricultural producers to export their product to the most demanding markets, always complying with the highest standards of quality and competitiveness.
Thanks to the trust and loyalty of our customers and suppliers we have managed to consolidate ourselves as a company that is always at the forefront of innovation in the agricultural sector.
All our achievements would not have been possible without our company’s main asset, our human resources, to whom we are infinitely grateful for their support and dedication. The partners will continue betting on the consolidation and growth of the company’s activities.
Thank you for be part of this endeavor, as the success achieved so far would not have been possible without the proactive participation of all of you.
Sun Fruits Exports S.A. Board of Directors
Beginning in 2008 with the joint of two agricultural export companies from Ica Valley (Agricola Riachuelo and Agricola Don Luis) and with two producers from Ica as well, who needed to process, pack and export their grapes production by reaching high quality levels and meeting the demands and standards of a very competitive market.
Until then, both companies resorted to different packing plants to process their grapes to be exported, but the capacity of these was saturated by the growth of the industry. At that moment, Sun Fruits become the solution for the producers needs.
Because of the increasing demand in Ica for maquila and cold storage services for exportation, Sun Fruits saw the opportunity to position itself as a service plant for producers in the region, for which it invested in infrastructure and human capital. Today 70% of the volume processed in the plant is dedicated to these export services.
By looking forward to compete equally with the major world producers, it was necessary for us to be at their same level and, as far as possible, exceed the quality of our products and also meet the required standards and certifications by each new market we sought to access.
