Applications open for agribusiness trade mission to Chile
Applications are open for US ag exporters to secure their spot on a USDA trade mission to Chile.
Participants will partake in business meetings with potential importers from Chile and Peru September 25th-29th. Along with networking opportunities and retail visits in Santiago, the mission also coincides with the USDA-endorsed Espacio Food and Service trade show.
Foreign Ag Service Administrator Daniel Whitley says the countries are celebrating the 200th anniversary of US-Chile diplomatic relations and today Chile and Peru are the second and third largest ag markets in south America, with exports exceeding $2 billion in 2022. He says there are strong opportunities for exporters across many sectors including animal protein, cheese, tree nuts and wheat.
The deadline to apply is July 5th.
The FAS also plans to host trade missions to Malaysia, Singapore and Angola this year.
