Wisconsin completes trade mission to Chile

Wisconsin officials are building on their trade relationship with Chile. 

Ag Secretary Randy Romanski tells Brownfield a trade delegation spent the first week of May on South America’s west coast promoting Wisconsin products. “It’s incumbent upon our agency to develop those relationships with Wisconsin businesses, with Wisconsin farmers, processors, and help them find their market in the world.”

Romanski says the delegation had very productive discussions with leaders and prospective buyers in Chile, and along with trading products, he says the people of Chile would like to share some educational opportunities. “Student exchanges, university professor exchanges, and we’re pretty fortunate in Wisconsin. We’ve got a portfolio of people who are interested in doing those kinds of things.”

Romanski says Chile is already the 17th largest buyer of Wisconsin products.  He says his department’s International Agri-business Center is constantly promoting Wisconsin products, and they arranged the Chili trade mission which included two cheese makers, Chad Vincent from Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin, and representatives from a distilling company, a genetics company, and a biological cleaning company.
