Chile: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

This report provides information to U.S. exporters of agricultural and related products on how to do business in Chile. The United States is Chile’s second-largest supplier of agricultural and related products after Argentina. Top U.S. products exported to Chile are beer, pork, wheat, feeds & fodders, dairy products, poultry, condiments & sauces, and beef. Chile is the second-largest market in South America for consumer-oriented agricultural products after Colombia. This category of products represented 63 percent of all U.S. agricultural and related exports to Chile from January to October 2020, reaching $546 million, a seven percent decrease over the same period in 2019. Factors behind this decline are related to COVID-19 sanitary measures in place since mid-March 2020, and the depreciation of the Chilean peso (CLP) against the U.S. dollar (USD) since October 2019.
