Jumpstart Your Product Export Sales to Chile

Chile is considered the most stable, secure, and prosperous country in Latin America and a strategic and like-minded partner that values its privileged relationship with the U.S. based on shared values and mutual interests.  Chile is characterized as a free, dynamic, and highly competitive market. The U.S. and Chile are strategic partners whose agricultural relationship has been guided by collaboration and trade capacity building allowing Chile to become a regional leader with a competitive trade market. 

Because of the U.S.-Chile FTA, Chile dropped all tariffs on agricultural products to “zero” as of January 2015.  The United States is the second-largest supplier of agricultural and related products to Chile.

U.S. agricultural exports to Chile topped US$1 billion for the first time in 2020.  In 2020, the U.S. top agricultural exports to Chile were beer, pork & pork products, wheat, feed & fodders, dairy products, condiments & sauces, poultry & poultry products, and beef & beef products. 

Chile is now the largest market for U.S. consumer-oriented products in South America.   Chile is also the 2nd largest market in South America for U.S. processed food product exports.
