Executives from Frutas de Chile, led by President Iván Marambio, and Senators Yasna Provoste and Rafael Prohens from the Atacama region, are working to implement the Systems Approach protocol with the United States, aiming to export fresh grapes without fumigation for the 2023-2024 season. This protocol, pending official publication, is crucial for the grape industry, which is significant to Chile's economy, benefiting over 1,500 producers and creating 50,000 jobs in the northern part of the country.
