During 2018, various municipalities of Santiago and Concepción brought in new regulations to address itinerant and illegal trade which also includes food stands. The irregularity in the payment of taxes and the questionable hygiene controls that exist in some of these food stands can put consumers’ health at risk.
The Chilean Sanitary Regulation allows only certain products such as peanuts, sealed sandwiches, coffee, tea, hot dogs, mote con huesillo and sopaipillas to be sold from street stalls/kiosks. However, the offer has expanded to more elaborate foods such as sushi, handrolls, improvised juice carts and gourmet sandwiches sold by vendors that are part of bakery establishments and find an opportunity of selling their products directly to customers along the street during rush hour.
In terms of legislation, various areas in Chile demand different prerequisites for food trucks to function and therefore food trucks are stationary and need to rent a space or operate through private events. Chilean food trucks are unable to move location and attract a different audience, and therefore do not enjoy the same popularity as the format found in North America.
Copihue is a local brand with over 40 years’ presence in street stalls/kiosks, which has gained nationwide recognition. Copihue only sells one product, which is mote con huesillo, a national peach and cereal drink that is usually drank during the summer season.
There were no emerging players in 2018 within street stalls/kiosks or any that had intentions to become chained operators. In 2017, Nuts4Nuts, which in previous years owned over 150 carts due to the popularity of selling roasted peanuts, remained visible, but belonged to independent operators who purchased the carts after the brand finalised its operations.
