Farm to Table 2015

About the Program

Participants will explore firsthand the leading exporting animal food production systems from farm-to-table in Chile.

Site visits along the food supply chain will be focused on production, international trade standards and emerging issues in food safety, animal and public health. Direct discussions with key government and private sector leaders and interactive multi-sectorial and cross-culture group activities will be designed to integrate knowledge and skills.

Food production systems will mainly include aquaculture (salmon production), beef (fresh meat and RTE products), and dairy (milk and cheese). Site visits will include primary production systems, processing plants and supermarkets. These production systems are considered key for exportation to the USA, the European Union, and/or other important markets.

Key Objectives

Develop awareness, understanding and familiarity of food systems in exporting countries such as Chile, and recognize the components of the global food production and international trade. 

Contrast the similarities and differences among the food systems in Chile, the United States and other countries.

Promote and catalyze collaborative group leadership through: network building opportunities and experiential and structured learning activities.
