Chile’s diverse geography yields itself to many agricultural products. These are sold and used in the country and also make up a large percentage of Chilean exports to other countries.
Lumber and Timber
Chile has vast forested lands in its southern half. These trees provide the source for lumber, wood furniture, and other wood products.
Chile’s slender shape hugs the Pacific Ocean from Peru in the north to Antarctica in the south. This huge coastline allows for a very productive fishing industry catching everything from salmon to Chilean Sea Bass.
Fruit and Vegetables
Chile’s fertile central valley is ideal for growing many types of fruits, vegetables, and grains. Due to a favorable climate and geographic isolation that reduces foreign pests and diseases, Chile is able to have a thriving agriculture industry.
As Chile sits in the southern hemisphere, its growing season allows fruit and vegetable exports to the USA, Canada, and Europe during their winter months.
