Two Peruvian companies have already received authorization, as they fulfill the health and safety margins, with products free of diseases that do not present a health hazard for the importing country.

This agreement was signed at the Presidential and the Peru-Bolivia Binational Cabinet meeting by José Manuel Hernández, Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation of Peru, and César Cocarico Yana, Minister of Rural Development and Lands of Bolivia.
