Chile diversifies blueberry markets 

 

The Chilean Blueberry Committee forecasts stable export volumes in 2020-21 despite the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The CBC is working to diversify its export markets, given the current overdependence on the US and China. Although shipments fell to Chile’s main market, the US (-13%), exports to Asia and Europe were up 20% and 8% respectively. 

The CBC forecasts exports of fresh berries will be close to 111,000 tons in 2020/21, which is 2% more than in the previous campaign. Meanwhile, organic exports increased 16% and now account for 14% of the total volume.
