Presentation Abstract

Currently, the Peruvian government and the regional government of Puno are giving strong emphasis on productive chains and clusters to give added value and thus create competitiveness. Carabaya Province (Puno) has one of the highest rate of extreme poverty and yet has the greatest production of alpacas and alpaca fiber in the world. There is no coordination between the actors in the production chain of alpacas. There are two companies that control the oligopoly of the alpaca fiber in Peru. The producers do not know the market opportunities that exist nationally and internationally. Challenges: (a) absence of state policies for preserving biodiversity in the Peruvian Andes, (b) no Internet visibility through products and byproducts of the alpaca, (c) no transfer of technology to the entire chain, and (d) universities and educational institutions do not investigate this issue and if it fails to make producers.

Analysis of the Production Chain of Alpaca Fiber in Peru

Currently, the Peruvian government and the regional government of Puno are giving strong emphasis on productive chains and clusters to give added value and thus create competitiveness. Carabaya Province (Puno) has one of the highest rate of extreme poverty and yet has the greatest production of alpacas and alpaca fiber in the world. There is no coordination between the actors in the production chain of alpacas. There are two companies that control the oligopoly of the alpaca fiber in Peru. The producers do not know the market opportunities that exist nationally and internationally. Challenges: (a) absence of state policies for preserving biodiversity in the Peruvian Andes, (b) no Internet visibility through products and byproducts of the alpaca, (c) no transfer of technology to the entire chain, and (d) universities and educational institutions do not investigate this issue and if it fails to make producers.
