Chile is a coun­try with great nat­u­ral and hu­man po­ten­tial. The coun­try boasts of the most trans­par­ent sky on Earth and pos­sesses some of the world’s most sig­nif­i­cant fresh­wa­ter re­serves. Nat­u­ral bar­ri­ers pro­tect Chile, con­vert­ing it into a true phy­tosan­i­tary is­land, thereby re­duc­ing the in­fes­ta­tion of pests and dis­eases. A place of amaz­ing ge­o­graph­i­cal and cli­matic con­trasts, Chile’s unique char­ac­ter­is­tics lend it un­ri­valled con­di­tions for pro­duc­ing fresh, pure, healthy, good qual­ity food, which is ap­pre­ci­ated around the world.

The coun­try is blessed with a var­ied range of cli­mates but its Mediter­ranean cli­mate has en­abled Chile to be­come a ma­jor food pro­ducer. It is the world’s big­gest ex­porter of blue­ber­ries, grapes, cher­ries, prunes, de­hy­drated ap­ples, frozen whole sal­mon and mus­sels. It is the world’s sec­ond-big­gest ex­porter on shelled wal­nuts, fresh plums, fresh sal­mon fil­let and un­shelled hazel­nuts. And it is the world’s third big­gest ex­porter of raisin, frozen rasp­ber­ries, grape juice and in­sulin.

Chile plays a key role in the global food in­dus­try and is a re­li­able sup­plier of safe, healthy food, which meets the high stan­dards de­manded by in­ter­na­tional con­sumers. Food prod­ucts from Chile are lead­ers in their cat­e­gories and are set be­come the mar­ket lead­ers with a con­tin­u­ous rise in their value. Wines, ki­wifruit, ap­ples, plums, olive oil, pork, dif­fer­ent types of seafood and Pisco are some of the other pop­u­lar ex­ports from Chile.
