Chile Launches 2023-2024 Cherry Export Season and Expands International Presence in Gin Production

The Indonesian-Chilean Chamber of Commerce and Culture has the pleasure of announcing the commencement of the 2023-2024 cherry export season at the San Antonio Terminal International (STI), with high expectations for this year's yield. The STI, as the main port of Chile, will see the departure of 15 Cherry Express ships, representing nearly 50% of the total cherries exported from Chilean ports. Mauricio Carrasco, Chairman of the STI board, emphasized the terminal's role in connecting Chilean efforts with the world, ensuring the best possible export conditions for the fruit.

Despite facing climate challenges such as fewer cold hours and spring rains, which primarily affected early varieties like Royal Dawn and Santina, the President of Frutas de Chile, Iván Marambio, expressed optimism for the season. It is estimated that around 81 million boxes of fresh cherries will be shipped worldwide, a slightly lower figure than last year due to these weather conditions.

In another exciting development, Chile is expanding its international presence beyond wine and pisco to include gin. Last Hope Distillery, located in Puerto Natales in Chilean Patagonia, is introducing gin to both Chilean locals and international visitors. The distillery's unique approach was born out of necessity, according to Kiera Shiels, who moved to Chile from Australia with her partner, Matt Oberg, to open the bar.

Furthermore, the Subrei is organizing a seminar to analyze the challenges and opportunities of SMEs and cooperatives in international trade. María Emilia Undurraga, Director of the Office of Studies and Agricultural Policies (Odepa), has invited participants to the Participative Public Account 2019, to review the policies developed and the strategic objectives of the institution.

These exciting developments in Chile's export sector, from cherries to gin, showcase the country's diverse produce and its commitment to fostering international trade relations.
