Chile: SAG updates the phytosanitary agreement with the U.S.

Looking to improve the conditions for the delivery of phytosanitary certification of agricultural products coming out of Chile to the United States, the Chilean Agriculture and Livestock Service (SAG) will sign a new update of the agreement that it already has, in which Asoex also participates, with (USDA -APHIS), its counterpart in the northern country. 

This program's goal is to provide phytosanitary certification for fresh horticultural products exported to the United States, jointly between the SAG and the USDA -APHIS in Chile. Thus, the products that have obtained this certification can enter the U.S. in a faster and more timely manner upon their arrival to that country.

This document specifies all the necessary procedures for export to the North American country, guaranteeing the U.S. agency that the products comply with the requirements established by them for their entrance into that country. "Expediting the internment processes of our products in other locations is vital to our service, especially in the United States, which imports nearly 45% of the horticultural products leaving our country. Currently, 55 million boxes are exported with this program's certification," said Hannibal Ariztía, SAG's national director.
