The caption says:

Pronto, en los mejores Supermercados de Lima, en una edición limitada, de las mejores papas de los Festivales 2012, 2013 y 2014.

That means that these little boxes, featuring the best varieties from recent National Native Potato Festivals,1 will soon be available in Lima’s supermarkets. No word on prices, but I suspect some considerable value addition. After all:

Old food the new way — it’s the Peruvian dream of future food.

  1. This time when the ocas and mashuas are included, they are listed as such, not labeled as potatoes! That is, in the image on the right side, which I had to enlarge to be able to see the text.
