Chilean Federation of Fruit Producers (Fedefruta) president Jorge Valenzuela said that the scenario looks “complicated for fruit producers in the country” and that growers are focusing on salvaging as much fruit as possible. As for the impact on export volumes, Valenzuela said that damage assessment is not yet their priority: “Do not ask us about loss estimates, about price increases, about the dimension of the impact. Right now the situation is very difficult. For the time being, Fedefruta is sharing technical information to fruit growers in order to face this real fruit emergency in the best way possible,” he said.
