There is currently a surge in demand for pulses (canary beans, navy beans, lentils, green peas and chickpeas) in Peru. Due to COVID-19, consumers are increasing purchases and consumption of pulses. In response, local importers are increasing purchases amid expected future shortages in stocks, lower yields, and higher prices. FAS Lima conducted an assessment of nine local importers to gather information about the current situation. These importers comprise 85 percent of the total pulse market.
