This report presents the results of an International Trade Centre (ITC) study looking at the impact of fluctuating global quinoa prices on rural Peruvian households dependent on the product for their basic food security.

Peru is one of the world’s leading producers of quinoa. Over the last 10 years, this protein grain has become a much sought-after product, especially in North America and Europe. As a result of increased demand, the price of quinoa nearly tripled between 2004 and 2013.

The orchid is Taiwan's top flower export product. However, increasing competition from the Netherlands and China had a great impact on Taiwan's export. This research examines the question of what are the major considerations for using the Taiwanese Phalaenopsis orchid label for promotion in international markets. The results indicate lack of specialized chilled storage techniques and lack of quality standards are two important factors. In particular, product quality is a key consideration.
