7Sense had a central role on the occasion of the State Visit of Their Majesties King Harald and Queen Sonja to Chile last week. We gave a speach at the opening seremony of the Business Summit, along with the Majesty and several ministers. Additionally, we presented our agri-tech solutions to a delegation of Chilean participants.

The Norwegian State Visit to Chile marked the first official visit to Chile since 1967. To mark the event, Norwegian companies were invited to join the accompanying business delegation and the Chile-Norway business summit 2019 in Santiago.

More than 80 representatives from Norwegian companies participated in the summit, where they met more than 200 Chilean representatives.

Chile is currently the second largest market for Norwegian companies in South-America, after Brazil. Norwegian export to Chile exceeded NOK 1,2 billion in 2018. Today, there are more than 60 Norwegian companies with active business relations in Chile, primarily related to aquaculture and fishery. 

7Sense Products presented their sustainable agri-tech solutions that helps farmers reduce waste of water and loss of food both pre- and post harvest.

Additionally, 7Sense were given a prime spot during the opening seremony - as a part of "Stories from Norway". Max. J. Tangen gave a brief taste of the 7Sense story, with emphasis on how technology can be utilized across segments, industries and cultures. "We appreciate the opportunity to tell our story in this setting and are proud to be honored as representatives for the business delegation this way," Tangen explains. 7Sense and Yara were selected to tell their stories, this way representing the span of Norwegian businesses.
