Chile can rightfully be called one of the most diverse countries in the world. This elongated strip of land that winds along the western side of South America, unites a wide variety of climates and grounds. The snow-capped peaks overlooking the capital Santiago are only a few hours drive from the beaches of Viña. With the red desert of Atacama to the north and the unique glacier on the Patagonian south side.
With a rich, volcanic soil and maybe the purest waters in the world, Chile has an abundance of fruit all year round. Due to its elongated shape, Chile is able to grow both in the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere, resulting in many products being available all year round.
All this was reason enough for our colleague Wanja to visit this beautiful, fertile country. He visited our supplier of quinces and kiwai and takes us with him on his journey!
