Chile is a recognized player in the fresh fruit industry. It is the main producer in the southern hemisphere and a world leader in the export of products such as cherries, plums, and blueberries, among others. This year the country participates in United Fresh showing its great offer and the development that has taken place around this sector that reaches 129 markets.
“Chile leads world exports in 29 product categories around the world, including fresh fruits. At ProChile, we remain committed to linking our fresh product offer with trade opportunities in the United States as new international economic challenges. We have a Free Trade Agreement that allows us to enter the United States with 0% tariff and we are convinced that the quality and seasonality of our products, added to the professionalism and seriousness of our exporters, will continue to convince the market that working with Chile is synonymous of success,” said Rodrigo Cid, Commercial Director of ProChile in Chicago.
The country will have a Booth in the International Trade Center at the United Fresh 2019 Convention & Expo. Activities begin on Monday, June 10th with networking events and industry seminars and will continue with the trade show on June 11th and 12th.
Chilean fresh fruits
Our fruit grows in this far-flung corner of the Earth, protected by unique natural barriers, like the Atacama Desert in the north, the Pacific Ocean in the west, the Andes mountain chain in the east and the Patagonian ice fields in the south.
With great flavor and diversity, Chilean fruits are available year-round and can be enjoyed anywhere, from school lunches to restaurants around the world.
Chile exports more than 100 different types of fruit, ranging from apples, blueberries, citrus fruit, cherries and grapes through to kiwi fruit, oranges, plums, and pears. Chile is also the largest fruit exporter in the southern hemisphere and the world’s largest exporter of blueberries, cherries, table grapes, and plums.
Our country is considered to be a world-class supplier because of its reliability and compliance with international Food Safety rules.
