Espacio Food and Service is the most important food show in Chile. It was held from September 27th to 29th in Santiago de Chile, Chile where the key contacts of the industry get together to share trends of products, services, and technologies.
California Milk took part for the first time in the show to explore the Chilean market and its potential on the dairy industry. This time CMAB participated in the US Pavilion, giving us an excellent booth location.
During our time in Chile, we visited the main supermarkets in the country to know the varieties available, store formats, and start evaluating business development opportunities.
In the show California Milk found interest of over 100 importers, distributors, and restaurants specifically for the cheese category like cream cheese, mozzarella, cheddar, and artisan cheeses. Also, we started to develop relationships with at least 5 key contacts of the retail, foodservice and brand reps.
“We value your visit to know and evaluate Chile. We hope to move forward and be able to have many Real California Milk products in Chile and South America. The response of the contacts after the show has been very positive and encouraging. We’ve already had 5 meetings.” -Renato Poblete, Deli Casei
