Chile: Food Processing Ingredients

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CI2022-0004

Chile is an open economy with a developed and competitive food industry. Just over half of Chilean food production lands in the domestic market, while 46 percent is exported. Food manufacturers leverage the country’s multiple trade agreements to export Chilean-manufactured processed products to the world. Imported ingredients represent about half of inputs used in the Chilean food manufacturing sector. Some U.S. ingredients are competitive, though competition from regional suppliers is intense.
