Chilean Fresh Fruit Exporters Association


Chilean Fresh Fruit Exporters Association

Chile is in a very privileged fruit production zone because of the naturally isolating effects of the landscape of the country - the Atacama Desert in the north, the Andes Mountains to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the ice-fields to the south. The unique natural geography of the country consisting of separate independent zones of production have enabled Chile to establish high quality fruit production, without the problems of viruses that have blighted the development of other fruit industry of the countries. Chile has therefore been able to exercise a high degree of control over land use practices employed by its growers, as well as over packing house conditions.
