1 KIWIFRUIT, NEW FRUIT IN WESTERN CULTURE. Mr. Carlos Cruzat President Chilean Kiwifruit Committee Cesena Italia, September 24, 2013
2 WHAT TYPE OF FRUIT? It has much more nutritional qualities than other fruit. It is a functional fruit. It is a new fruit in the west of the world; 40 years in the market. It is not in western DNA. There are no traditional recipes, we have to build them. The consumer must be educted how to recognize the quality and learn how to consume it. The kiwi must be ripened; natural ripening process is imperfect not all the times fruit comes be well ripe.
3 CONSUMER EXPERIENCE Pleasant experiences consuming fruit: Juicy watermelon Ripe melons Sweet apricots Yellow Pineapples Kiwis. Kiwis..? What positive experiences do we remember having with kiwi? Where have we eaten a good kiwi? In a supermarket tasting? In hotels and restaurants? At home?
4 GLOBAL CHALLENGES We must work towards offering a kiwi that: Competes with summer fruits. Is capable of being permanently added to the family food basket. Develops: Satisfaction and consumption in the consumer. Demand and profitability in the market. We must provide conditioned and ripened fruit, similar to bananas and mangos.
5 CHILEAN EXPERIENCE A modest and personal experience Chilean Kiwi travels long distances, sometimes over 40 days; when it is shipped it is unknown how the target market will be. Slow? Hot? Good or bad prices? Chile always offered a firm fruit thinking in possible long storage times and in the importer and seller demands (> 10 pounds + 12 Brix). But consumers were not satisfied. So the Chilean kiwi industry decided to change, to satisfy the consumer by offering a delicious product during the entire season.
6 CHILEAN EXPERIENCE A modest and personal experience First, we had to organize ourselves, to satisfy the international consumer from the perspective of a fruit supplying country, not just as a company strategy. The Kiwi Committee was founded in It was created as a effort between growers and exporters (marketing companies). joint Secondly, we had to define objectives, based on the factors which determine customer satisfaction, and then develop a strategy to implement the changes which ensure success of the mission. Thirdly, we had to consolidate the project to transform the Chilean kiwi industry.
7 CHILEAN EXPERIENCE A modest and personal experience The image of a country: Is slowly built with everyone gaining trust through the product offered, and Is destroyed very quickly by a few. Generosity and commitment is required to participate in a country project, with clear objectives to be quantified, with leaders who are respected and tenacious.
8 CHILEAN EXPERIENCE A modest and personal experience Overall guidelines: Satisfy the consumer based on excellent consumption experience. Standardize the quality parameters. Improve product homogenity. Increase parameters such as Dry Matter + Soluble Solids, which are the ones that determine the potential of soluble solids for the final consumer. Pre-condition and Ripen the fruit. The right product do the best promotion by it self.
9 CHILEAN KIWIFRUIT INDUSTRY INFORMATION
10 CHILEAN KIWIFRUIT Chile is the third largest exporter of kiwifruit in the world, characterized by being grown in a large 600- kilometer long geographical area.

14 CURRENT SITUATION
16 CHALLENGES FACING CHILE TODAY REGARDING PSA Early determination of Psa is very relevant, for which laboratories with real-time PCR are absolutely necessary in the industry. It is necessary to maintain Psa-free zones when planting yellow varieties as well as reduce costs in the Hayward variety, which means having regional prevention plans. Growers and Exporters must play a major role. Growers must be informed and involved. The exporters should implement a rapid transfer of information to growers. The Ministry of Agriculture should give a boost to the transfer of applied research and coordinated measures, and empower SAG to act promptly and efficiently in policy-making. Research and local validations: - Epidemiology - Products and application dates Leadership and coordination of the industry to enhance the initiatives, where the roles of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Kiwifruit Committee is essential.

39 Competitiveness model Conditioning in Origen and Pre-Ripening at the Destination
40 Considerations / Challenges Objectives: Provide a kiwi suitable for consumption to the consumer, with optimal expression of flavor, which generates a good experience. Reach the ripening potential for consumption of the fruit through the implementation of conditioning and preripening technologies that allow the expression of all its organoleptic characteristics. Increase sales by means of an increase in the rotation of the shelf (gondola) allowing higher profitability per square meter.
41 TARGET : TASTE AND VALUE ADDED KIWIFRUIT TASTE! HIGH SUGAR, SWEET. LOW ACIDITY SOFT CORE AND PULP FRUIT RIPE AND UNIFORM HIGH CONTENT OF VITAMINE C, CALCIUM AND POTASIUM.
42 READY TO EAT OR READY TO RETAIL? SWEET, JUICY AND RIPE (4 A 2 Lbs. ).
43 TALKING THE SAME standards agreed
44 Seminar in Rotterdam
45 What we need? A close relationship with the Importers (Distributors, Category Managers, Services providers) /Supermarket. Supermarket and distributors need to agree with the firmness requirement associated to the sales strategy. Flexibility in Packaging as opportunity to sell more! Marketing and promotional activities together.
46 A Global Challenge The consumer is not always able to distinguish the origin of the supplier, but if he has doubts regarding the product, he will choose a different fruit. To build a product category such as the kiwi requires all growers and exporters from all countries to offer a homogenous product that allows having a delicious experience.
