Chileans are now demanding more choice not only in products in supermarkets but also in restaurants and cafés. Rising disposable incomes have stimulated interest in premium, foreign products. In addition, U.S. food products are known for their reliability and high standards, as they meet FDA and USDA standards.
Although Chile produces many local crops and products, they continue to import many of their bulk and intermediate products. Importers will need to implement Chile’s new nutritional labeling law requirements.
