In Chile, the fruit industry is the largest food export industry so it is necessary to distinguish ourselves from the worldwide competition through sustainability indicators. This can improve the image of our country abroad and can also allow us to enter new markets in tune with more informed consummers that are aware of the importance of pollinators in the food chain.
