Tu Chile Aqui was created by two people (father and son) who had a desire to bring back some old country items here to the US for our fellow Chileans. The son, me (the one on the right of the picture), was crazy about going to Chile but most importantly being around its people (most important my cousins, aunts and uncles) as well as its food. My mom would always bring items back from Chile for everyone. From mermeladas to mariscos and even cheese. Tea was one of her favorites as well. She did this a few times in the 80's and 90's and the past few years. It was almost like waking up christmas morning to see what Santa Claus brought. In this case, it meant waking up in the morning to pick her up at the airport and have her open the luggage and pass out gifts and food items. She always had this proud look on her face because she was able to obtain items that were not sold here and give it to her family.
Unfortunately, she past away last November of 2005. I miss her very much and wish she was alive to see what I've decided to do. In dedication to her I opened up this store with the help of my dad. We have come along way the past few weeks to where we are now. We both have full time jobs and this is only a side business that I really like to call "a hobby" instead. We try to offer the best prices possible. Whether this hobby fails or not I at least have that "proud" feeling that my mom used to have when passing out gifts. Priceless!!!!!
Tu Chile Aqui is dedicated to bringing you chilean products that are either hard to find or non-existent here in the US.
We advertise some of our products online as well as take
custom requests as much as possible. We not only import and sell products online, but we also distribute to varios
food stores in the United States.
