Analyzing Consumer Demand for Andean Root and Tuber Products in Peru Academic Article uri icon


  • This article reports the results of a market level study that examines consumer demand, preferences and perceptions of two Andean root and tubers crops from Peru with natural functional properties. Market analysis was performed on value-added products derived from these tubers-pre-sliced and quality-guaranteed Ulluco, Purple Potato Papa Seca, and functional snacks made from both tubers. Descriptive and multivariate analyses, based on primary survey data, are performed and discussed in the paper. Copyright (c) by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
