EU, Chile near organic trade deal



eu chile organic trade dealThe European Union and Chile have concluded negotiations on an agreement on trade in organic products, with a deal in sight.

The agreement will see the two mutually recognise the equivalence of their organic production rules and control systems. It covers all EU organic products and allows for products produced and controlled according to EU rules to be sold in the Chilean market and vice versa.

A statement from the European Commission said the agreement on trade in organic products will be the first of the “new generation” agreements in trade in organic products and the first bilateral recognition with a Latin American country.
