Chile’s food retail sales reached $17.2 billion, a 5 percent over 2017. The Chilean retail sector is composed of a mix of large supermarkets, mid-sized grocery stores, convenience stores, gas station markets and thousands of smaller independent neighborhood mom-and-pop shops. On-line food sales show some dynamic, but it is still a niche market. The main food and beverage distribution channels are supermarkets with a market share of about 62 percent. There is good sales potential on the Chilean market for U.S. exports of craft beer, distilled spirits, beef cuts, poultry, pork (chilled/fresh), dairy products (cheeses and ice creams), sauces/mixes/condiments and seasonings, fruit juices, prepared food and frozen meals, snacks foods and healthy food products.
