VANCOUVER, CANADA - Oppy has acquired a 50% share in Agroretail, one of the largest produce suppliers in Peru.
“Even during these uncertain times, we’re continuing to balance our short-term goals with our long-term strategic vision,” said John Anderson, chairman, chief executive officer and managing partner of Oppy. “Our new partnership with Agroretail adeptly bridges the gap between these two equally important objectives, and will enable us to reach new markets and customers, by doing what we do best: growing the top-quality assortment of fruit that meets the needs of the market.”
Oppy currently imports avocados, blueberries, grapes, citrus products, mangoes, ginger and pomegranates from Peru. The partnership with Agroretail will further develop Oppy’s supply to retail and wholesale accounts in Peru on a wide range of items.
“Agroretail has been an incredibly reliable partner of Oppy for many years, so in many ways this new agreement is an extension of our tried and trusted relationship,” said Francisco Avendaño, general manager of Agroretail. “We are proud of the work that we have done together and look forward to leveraging the great growth potential in several key categories in the years ahead.”
