Expect price hike for Chile’s wine, apples

Workers at a winery in Santa Cruz, Chile, separate intact bottles of wine from those that were broken by the earthquake that hit the country on Feb. 27. About 125 million litres of wine in vats, barrels and bottles were spilled.

The earthquake that killed hundreds of people and washed away entire towns in Chile’s coastal areas caused heavy damage to the country’s key exports of fruit and fish.

Consumers of apples and wine could see prices increase as Chile, a major producer of those products, slowly recovers from one of biggest quakes on record.

Chile’s top fruit exporter group, Fedefruta, said downed electricity lines and destroyed roads pose a threat to fruit exports in the world’s No. 3 apple exporter.
