Garlic

The origins of garlic can be traced to the mountainous region of Central Asia, from where it was brought to the Americas by the Spanish. In Chile there are records of it being cultivated since colonial times and it has been exported since 1927.

Garlic is known around the world for its medicinal properties and its use in flavouring different dishes.

In 2014 garlic exports reached US$ 22 million.
