The five course meal presented on the beautiful occasion was marked by the flavours that Chile produces. It included the Chilean sea bass beautifully presented as the main dish as well as Puglia Burrata as the anti-pasti and pasta with delicious butternut squash ravoilo paired with Chilean wines.

Economic partnership between the two countries continues to grow and food is a very important part of this. Indians are slowly getting a taste of Chilean foods and are beginning to appreciate the quality that Chilean produce brings."

The Chilean products showcased at the event were fresh produce like kiwifruit, cherries, blueberries and apples and dry fruit like Walnuts. Chilean wines were also showcased. Unboxing Chile also exhibited tourism possibilities in Chile.
