What are the labeling requirements for exports to Chile?

All labels must contain the following information, in Spanish, regardless of what other description or text appears: (a) name of manufacturer or importer or registered brand; (b) country of manufacture; (c) size and weight converted to metric system; (d) quality, purity, ingredients, or mixtures; and (e) expiration date for canned or packaged foodstuffs.

Imported products customarily consumed by the public must display the country of origin before being sold in Chile. Packaged goods must be marked to show the quality, purity, ingredients or mixtures, and the net weight or measure of the contents. Labeling must be in Spanish and measurements must be metric. Canned or packaged foodstuffs imported into Chile must bear labels in Spanish for all ingredients, including additives, manufacturing and expiration dates of the products, and the name of the producer or importer. All sizes and weights of the net contents also must be converted to the metric system. Goods not complying with these requirements may be imported but not sold to consumers until conversion is made. Thus, foodstuffs labeled in English have to be re-labeled in Chile before they can be sold.
