Chile exported the equivalent of US$ 1.3 billion in food to Brazil last year, which represented an increase in shipments of 21.9% compared to 2021, according to data from ProChile, an agency linked to the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Hugo Corales, director of ProChile, says that the geographic proximity and the free trade agreement inked between the two countries in 2021 favored exports. “For this year, we are going to intensify the presence of Chilean food products in more regions of the country, such as the Northeast and the Amazon,” he said in a statement.

The institution underscores the substantial increase in sales of food products of maritime origin, which moved US$ 807 million in 2022, or 20.3% more than in the previous year. In addition, meat sales increased 48.5% to $14.97 million.

According to Pro Chile, in the beverage segment, bottled wine shipments generated US$ 1.8 million, which represented a growth of 1% compared to 2021. Chile currently holds a 44.29% share in this sector of the Brazilian market.
