LIMA, PERU - Camposol Holding Ltd. has announced its Q3 2015 financial report, highlighting a 19.9% sales increase over the same quarter last year. The company accredits the sales increases to increased volumes sold of avocados and blueberries, with even more increased volumes expected in the next 2 years. 

Samuel Dyer Coriat, Executive Chairman of Camposol Holding Ltd.

"The third quarter results are in line with our expectations,” explained Samuel Dyer Coriat, Executive Chairman of Camposol. “By year-end, the company results will reflect an important increase of our blueberries segment (around 400% higher in volume than the previous year).  Within the next 2 years, we will see an important growth in volumes (avocados, blueberries and shrimp), without additional substantial CapEx.”
