Dried and Dehydrated Fruits

Raisins

Chile began producing raisins at the end of the 1970s, when it was found that it was cost-effective to turn table grapes that did not meet export standards into raisins instead of discarding them.

They are mainly produced from table grapes grown for export and sold fresh.

In 2014, raisin exports totalled US$ 176 million.
