Food Tourism in Chile

Food Tourism in Chile Makes an Impact

The national tourism organization FEDETUR sponsored Chile’s first national tourism industry summit, hosting one session on food tourism in Chile. The event took place on September 12-13 in Santiago. By all accounts, it was a great first event attended by about 500 industry professionals from around the country.

The World Food Travel Association’s Executive Director Erik Wolf delivered a session on food tourism that was well-received. The gist of the presentation was that food tourism in Chile has huge potential. However, a lot of work needs to be done, including the development of national pride for the country’s food and drink, promotion of iconic food and beverage products, cataloging high-quality food/ beverage and multimedia assets, development of a regional success story within Chile (such as the northern Patagonia region) and more. We enjoyed the Summit and look forward to following the development of food tourism in Chile.
