What advances has Chile reached in terms of nourishment?
Considering the history behind policies in Chile, the most important are those policies oriented to reduce obesity, which is quite positive although more can be done. For example, in relation to the food costs, when we compare fast food to healthy food.
In addition, in scientific terms, Chile is doing research with local products, like Maqui fruit, which has to be boosted and used as a way to improve.
According to your experience, what is the main challenge that Chile has in this topic?
To reinforce inclusive markets where producers and consumers converge. These short circuits have big potential. These circuits are innocuous, so do not consist in big areas but are originated in the territory, they benefit from the local cultural knowledge, where you decide to revitalize the local culinary culture and take advantage from unknown food.
In this moment Chile could establish the nourishment system as a center of its culture and society, it could be a source of national proud. Through this way, Chileans could celebrate this biological and territorial diversity, which is unique in the country.
