Customer Snapshot: Overview
#1 grower of Hass avocados in the world
CAMPOSOL, a worldwide agriculture supplier, is one of the largest employers in Peru. They are the world’s largest exporter of Hass avocados, and are soon to be the largest exporter of blueberries as well. In 2006, the company realized that their goals for expansion into the fresh produce market could only be reached with a global data management solution and better strategizing among their business areas. CAMPOSOL implemented SAP ERP in 2008 with great success in consolidating processes and saving time. Since then CAMPOSOL has continued to adopt new SAP solutions to enhance their digital transformation and ensure future success.

Customer Snapshot: Business Model
CAMPOSOL S.A. is the leading agro-industrial company headquartered in Peru. A vertically integrated company, they are involved in the farming, processing, and marketing of highest-quality agricultural and seafood products such as avocados, blueberries, grapes, mangoes, tangerines, asparagus, shrimp, and scallops. Exporting to Europe, the United States, and Asia, CAMPOSOL’s business model has been focused on goods in cans and glass jars until recently when the growing demand for nutritious, fresh, organic products opened the company up to a new opportunity to expand into fresh foods.
CAMPOSOL’s vision is to become one of the main five leaders in providing healthy food to families of the world.

Delivering high quality, fresh produce worldwide.
Speed Up Distribution from Farm to Fridge
CAMPOSOL S.A. is a large company that grows and distributes healthy foods far and wide across the globe. They saw an opportunity to boost sales by expanding beyond canned-foods into the fresh produce market. To meet that goal, CAMPOSOL realized the company needed to Run Simple and transform their business processes, exchange spreadsheets for more sophisticated data management, improve the user experience, and optimize overall processes.
Since fresh produce perishes quickly, they knew they needed to accelerate the production chain from the farm to the consumer’s hands. Plus, to enable smart decision-making during their foray into the realm of fresh produce, they needed detailed, lightning-fast insight into how each product was selling in each area of the world.
The in-memory processing capabilities SAP offers appealed strongly to the CAMPOSOL team, who were bogged down with reactive analytics and cumbersome spreadsheets. While they had originally considered developing an in-house solution, after conducting market and cost-benefit analyses, they ultimately decided to adopt SAP® ERP back in 2007, which was deployed in 2008.
A long-standing relationship.
Enter SAP: The SAP Experience
The transitions have gone well, enhancing the company’s data management and analytics tools to improve performance at each step. The fresh produce arm of the business is thriving, with CAMPOSOL’s distribution of Hass avocadoes and fresh blueberries achieving superlative performance.

Better Business: Benefits
The application CAMPOSOL has built on the SAP HANA platform provides real-time data on what is happening with the crops in the fields so they can stay informed and plan ahead. That’s vital information in an industry where constantly shifting weather conditions affect every aspect of business.
Real-time data keeps CAMPOSOL informed.
Better Business: Run Simple
Reports that used to take 14 hours now take only 2 minutes. That’s just one example of time saved with real-time data processing. In addition to speed, the system is also more agile, with better data analysis functionality. With these improvements, managers can make more informed decisions and spend more time planning for the future instead of reacting to missed opportunities.
Processes 4 TB of data in real-time
In the past, we had to limit searches and time periods for reports. Today, we can analyze everything, and managers have a sounder basis for decisions.– Juan Miguel Balbin Miranda, CIO of CAMPOSOL
With the time saved in processing reports, managers can now turn their focus to a search for new business opportunities. CAMPOSOL is bringing in new SAP Fiori® apps to let users access the information they need on the go and on demand to further improve productivity. The company is also deploying SAP BusinessObjects™ Lumira software to help visualize data and improve insights for even greater business intelligence.
Taking advantage of all SAP HANA has to offer.
We are trying to build a solution that can provide us with flexibility to make us a live enterprise. I believe in the SAP Cloud Platform because it is going to provide us with success in all the channels that we need to face.– Juan Miguel Balbin Miranda, CIO of CAMPOSOL
