Welcome to Sun Fruits Exports S.A.
Ica Valley, Peru
The Sun Fruits Group was born when two traditional families from Ica decided to take up the challenge to join the production chain and bring their produce from the fields to the most demanding international markets. The result was the integration of the field production with a state-of-the-art processing plant to satisfy the needs of the Group, provide services to other producers and contribute to the development of the domestic fruit farming and agricultural industry.
Such growth enabled the generation of new sources of direct income for over 1,000 families, thus contributing not only to the local economy but also to the creation of new spaces for education and professional training.
This also brought about the opportunity for small and medium-sized agricultural producers to export their products to the most demanding markets, always meeting the highest standards of quality and competitiveness.
The trust and loyalty of our customers and suppliers have allowed us to consolidate as a company that is always at the forefront of innovation in the agricultural sector.
We owe all our achievements to the company’s main asset, our employees. Their support and dedication deserve our endless gratitude. The partners will continue on their quest for the consolidation and growth of the Group’s operations.
Thank you for being part of this undertaking. Our success so far would not have been possible without the proactive participation of all of you.
The Board of Directors of Sun Fruits Exports S.A.
Sun Fruits was incorporated in 2008 through the merge of two agricultural export companies based in the Ica Valley: Agricola Riachuelo and Agricola Don Luis. Both producers realized they needed to process, pack and export their grape production and to achieve high quality levels so they could meet the demands and standards of a very competitive market.
Until then, both companies would engage different packing plants to process their grapes for export. However, their capacity reached saturation point due to the industry growth. That was the pivotal point where Sun Fruits came up as the solution for the producers’ needs.
Given the increasing demand in Ica for grinding and cold storage services for export, Sun Fruits saw the opportunity to position as a processing plant for regional producers. What followed was an investment in infrastructure and human capital. Today, 70% of the volume processed at the plant is for export purposes.
In order to compete with major world producers as an equal market player, we needed not only to match and, whenever possible, exceed the quality of our products but also to meet the high standards and certifications required by each new market we wanted to target.
