Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs)

Our company seeks to develop products derived from forest environments other than wood, often products that have been traditionally used for subsistence by rural communities. Many of the food products that can be extracted from the forests are healthy, nutritious and provide various benefits for human health. The following identifies the main NTFPs:

Wild Foods

These products include edible wild foods that can be consumed directly or with simple processing. While most of them are fruits and seeds, this group also includes mushrooms, roots and other wild plants. Among the food products that our company is developing are:

Edible Wild Mushrooms
Fungi are a renewable natural resource, cheap to produce but also delicate to handle and therefore need careful management during cultivation in the forest and post-harvest period. The processing methods vary with the type of fungus involved. For most common wild mushrooms processing can be either dehydration, brining or freezing.

  • Dehydrated
  • Frozen and brine

 

Basketry Materials

Native species have been traditionally used as raw material for handicrafts and, especially, to make baskets. The most common species are the colihue (Chusquea coleou) and other native species of bamboo that have traditionally been used extensively in the manufacture of furniture in the rural areas of southern Chile.

Ornamental Items
The flora of Chilean forests has enormous potential as ornamental species, with species that have a variety of form, size, color and brightness which can make them very suitable for decorative use. In the national and international markets there exist a number of striking species (Flowers, plants, Decorative branches and seeds) that are highly prized.

 

Medicinal Plants

Medicinal products include a wide variety of herbaceous and woody species traditionally used in the treatment of diseases by the rural population. In Chile there are 561 vascular plant species that have been documented as having traditional medicinal use.

Many of these plants are sold in bulk or in packages of various sizes in formal and informal markets, frequently appearing species like pichi (Fabiana imbrincata), quintral (Trixteris corymbosus), sage (Satureja multiflora), pingo-pingo (Ephedra chilensis), natres (Solanum ligustrinum), palqui (Cestrum parqui), culén (Otholobium glandulosum), boldo (Peumus boldus) among others.

 

Extracts for Industrial Use

Some of the applications that have been discovered for species of the native forest includes: cosmetics, pharmaceutics, textile dyes and food additives.

The Chilean flora is rich in aromatic species of interest for the production of extracts for cosmetic use.

Of these, Quillay (Quillaja saponaria), Chilean hazelnut (Gevuina avellana) and rosehip (Rosa rubiginosa) are wild species that produce chemical extracts of commercial interest that have a significant export volume.
