Last night in the produce aisle at Safeway...I noticed something.
2 out of the 3 fruits or vegetables I looked at, came from Chile.
My question is, who is bringing this stuff in?
Is it coming in the belly holds of passenger flights? Or dedicated freighters?
And what is the port of entry? Los Angeles? Miami? Houston?
Are special freighters required for the shipment of perishables like fruits and vegetables?
And finally, how long has this been going on? I mean, it seemed like EVERYTHING was from Chile...except for the Oranges, Lettuce, and Potatoes.
