The Chilean Fresh Fruit Association (CFFA) directs all North American marketing and promotional activities for fresh Chilean fruit. As the largest fruit exporter in the Southern Hemisphere, Chile exports more than 2.6 million tons of fruit each year. North America is its largest market, importing more than 800,000 tons annually.
Thanks to Chile’s counter-seasonal harvest, North Americans have year-round access to a wide variety of fresh fruit. In winter, for example, consumers can continue to enjoy many of their favorite summer fruits (like blueberries, grapes and stone fruit) due to Chile. In summer, fresh lemons, navels and mandarins are in abundant supply.
Chile is surrounded on all sides by natural barriers (Atacama Desert to the north, Pacific Ocean to the west, Andes Mountains to the east and the Patagonia ice fields to the south) protecting it from many of the pests that challenge farmers in other parts of the world. With a long export history, Chile ranks among the top 10 countries in the world with the most GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) certificates.
