Fruittrade is organized by the Chilean Federation of Fruit Producers (Fedefruta, Federación de Productores de Frutas de Chile) with the support of the Chilean government, through the Ministry of Agriculture, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, thanks to their exports promotion agency, ProChile.
Founded in 1985, Fedefruta, the Chilean Federation of Fruit Producers, is a non-profit organization that represents over 28 thousand fruit producers throughout the country, defending their interests before authorities and other sectors within the supply chain, thus improving their business opportunities.
The prestige Fedefruta has attained over these 31 years has allowed the federation to become involved in debates over policies that affect the entire industry, serving as a spokesman for Chilean entrepreneurs before the government, congress, research centers and general public opinion, always playing a guiding, facilitating and integrating role.
Among its many activities, since 2003, Fruittrade has held the most important business roundtable, convention and tradeshow in the entire Chilean fruit and vegetable industry.
