FruitCare is an international business roundtable and seminars specialized in Chilean fruit and vegetables for export. It is organized by the Fruit Grower Federation of Chile and it is also supported by the Chilean government through the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Chilean Promotion Bureau, ProChile.
Founded in 1985, the Chilean Fruit Grower Federation (Fedefruta in Spanish) is a non-profit organization who represents over twenty-eight thousand fruit growers throughout the country. One of the many purposes of the institution is to defend their interests against authorities and other sectors of the supply chain thus improving their business opportunities.
The Federation’s good standing has allowed it to actively participate in the debates of the policies that affect the industry, acting as a guiding, enabling and integrating voice of Chilean businessmen before the government, parliamentarians, research centers and public opinion in general.
Since 2003, the Federation has celebrated Fruittrade, an event known as the largest business roundtable, convention and exhibition of the Chilean fruit and vegetable industry.
