Overview of Food in Chile
Chile is located along the southwestern coast of South America on the Pacific Ocean. There are two mountain ranges (The Andes and a lower smaller range) , and between them is where Chile's agricultural activity is focused. In and around the major cities, such as Santiago, there are major environmental issues, so farmers in Chile cannot grow enough crops or raise enough livestock to feed the people in Chile. Food has the be imported because the environmental issues would contaminate the food.
