Chile seeks government approval for fruit investment programme

Chile needs to invest between USD1.8-2.4 billion annually to keep renewing its fruit production base, that currently totals more than 321,000 hectares.

“Traditionally, conventional wisdom was that some 10% of an orchard should be replanted each year. However, with the current speed of change in variety replacement this is closer to 15%,” said Jorge Valenzuela, president of Chile’s fruit growers’ federation Fedefruta, who announced the investment projection.
