Focus on big picture of Chilean industry

To some, Chile has been the one leading the way.

“I see the future in countries like Chile — which has been a good example of how to do things for a while — Colombia, Peru and Mexico,” Peru’s former president Alan Garcia is quoted as saying in Luhnow’s essay.

So let the strikers take their lunch break. As of right now (I just checked) they’re back to work, and in this winter and likely many more winters to come, it will probably be business as usual.

Your 'funny' comments about the '2014 Lunch Strike' are tasteless and unnecesary. The economic damage in both sides of the conflict and on the rest of the actors involved in this trade are substantial and nothing to laugh about. The disruption of the Chilean fruit supply is easily noticeable on the supermarket shelfs in the NE and SE nowadays. Try to find a 12-oz clamshell of blueberries for less than 4 or 5 bucks, if you can, and please, let me know. As far as your comment:"I haven’t been able to follow the story closely in the Chilean press", a number of Chilean trade publications and few newspapers have English versions, so you probably could have tried a little harder to get the information from the proper sources.
