Chile: New Gain Report

Chile: Organic logo

(

A new report of the Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) of the United States Department of Agriculture (gain.fas.usda.gov) informs extensively about the current status of the organic market in Chile.

While there are no official market estimates, the AAOCH (Chilean Organic Agriculture Association – Agrupación de Agricultura Orgánica de Chile) estimates that the organic market in Chile moves approximately 35 million US dollars worth of products annually. This estimate includes about 2.4 million US dollars of local consumption, with the remainder representing exports. Imports of organic products, by comparison, are very small. The overall size of the organic sector (local consumption, production, and export) has been growing steadily accompanied by increased diversity in distribution channels, the Organic Agriculture Law that was passed in 2007, and the National Certification System of Organic Products.
