Senator Sweeney has fought to create jobs and economic opportunity for everyone. He sponsored bills to provide economic incentives for job creation, to create new jobs and job training for the unemployed, and to restore tax cuts for the working poor. Recognizing the importance of transportation infrastructure to the state’s economy, he has been a leader on renewing funding for the Transportation Trust Fund. He continues to work to make college more affordable and reduce college debt for New Jersey’s students and middle-class families.

Senator Sweeney has taken a leading role in promoting property tax relief and making government operate more effectively and more efficiently. He also helped build schools for special needs children, established parks for children with disabilities, and sponsored and created a statewide registry of offenders who abused individuals with developmental disabilities.

Senator Sweeney has represented the Third Legislative District since 2002.

Receiving the 2016 “Lifetime Achievement” Award: Barbara Hunter, BHA Consults, LLC

Barbara Hunter’s commitment and dedication to the Chilean Fruit Industry is well known and marked with numerous recognitions including being one of the first Friend of Chile recipients 16 years ago. After ending a long career with Western Industries, today Barbara continues to be actively involved in the Delaware River Port community. As a Director and member of the Maritime Exchange for the Delaware River and Bay’s Executive Committee, Barbara continues to be an advocate for Chilean interests. Currently she is an active member of both the CBP-AG Working Group and the USDA Treatment Fee Task Force.

In 2012, forming her own company Barbara became a consultant for Western where she had been affiliated for more than 40 years before her departure earlier this year. Prior to joining Western Industries in 1976, as Marketing Director, Ms. Hunter was the Director of Consumer Affairs for the National Pest Management Association, in Washington, DC.   In 1980 she was became Western’s Director of Imported Commodities as a result of her work with the Cocoa trade; and her deep involvement with the Chilean fruit business, which she attracted to Western in 1979. Having traveled extensively during her career throughout Central and South America, her first trip to Chile occurred in 1983. That was the beginning of a long and enduring respect for Chilean fruit growers, shippers and all those in the import and export process.

An innovator and a steadfast champion for Chilean Fruit interests, one of her endeavors was the creation of The Food Safety and Security Program for port terminals. That program was initiated just prior to the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. This was the first program of its type in the country, and it positioned the port terminals where Western provided USDA Quarantine treatments, to take a leadership role in the new security measures to come which would impact port operations.

For her tireless efforts in the Delaware River Ports Ms. Hunter has garnered many awards and recognitions. She has been sought out for interviews, written articles and has been a featured speaker for many industry groups.

11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile – April 27, 2016

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile

11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile
Wine Tasting and Dinner
April 27, 2016
Hotel du Pont
Wilmington, DE

On Wednesday, April 27th, the Chilean and American Chamber of Commerce (CACC) hosted the 11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile Wine Tasting and Dinner, an evening full of delicious Chilean food and wine. The night began with a reception and Chilean wine tasting before everyone was escorted into the Hotel du Pont’s Gold Ballroom for dinner and the award ceremony.

CACC President Robert Palaima opened the evening’s program with a warm welcome, thanking all attendees for their continued support of the Chamber and recognizing special guests in attendance before introducing Presenting Sponsor, Leo Holt of Holt Logistics to the stage. Holt began his introduction to the Chilean Ambassador to the U.S., His Excellency Juan Gabriel Valdes, by accrediting him for his great work in the face of the difficult Chilean season. He accredited Ambassador Valdes for “opening the window” to Chile as a major partner and gateway for growth along the Delaware River.

11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile

Ambassador Valdes approached the stage with gratitude and pride in the Philadelphia-Chile relationship; he had just been visiting Philadelphia a few weeks prior and saw firsthand the region’s appreciation for the strong bond. Ambassador Valdes informed the audience that the Delaware and Philadelphia ports receive more than half of Chile’s fresh food exports and that the United States is Chile’s second largest trade partner.  He closed by emphasizing the importance of enhancing the relationship by not just quantity, but also quality, and invited everyone to participate in the upcoming Chile Week to be held in Philadelphia, New York and Miami in October 2016.

11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile

Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner of fresh Chilean salmon provided by Agrosuper USA while listening to festive live music.  After dessert, the program continued with Presenting Sponsor, Anne Bookout of Royal Fumigation, who remarked how proud her company is to continually support the Chamber’s mission and the annual Experience the Taste of Chile event.  Benjamin Leavenworth, Honorary Consul of Chile, mirrored Bookout’s praise of the Chamber and also described his appreciation for the support of APHIS, an agency which protects consumers while simultaneously guiding the powerful relationship between Chile and Philadelphia which ultimately strengthens the alliance. Leavenworth noted that the strong relationship between Greater Philadelphia and Chile was demonstrated through the recent visit from a Chilean Senatorial Delegation, led by Senator Garcia-Huidobro of the VI Region.

11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile

Following Leavenworth, Delaware’s Secretary of State, Jeffrey Bullock, took the stage and recounted the wonderful people, culture and geography of Chile after his recent and first trip to the country before welcoming to the podium Visionary Sponsor Miriam Borja-Fisher of Western Fumigation. In order to properly credit the USDA APHIS PPQ, Borja-Fisher spoke of the inauguration of CACC’s Visionary Award in 2012 to recognize individuals and organizations for their outstanding work in building resilient international trade relationships between Chilean and US partners.  She noted a great appreciation for the comprehensive work of APHIS, emphasizing its close alignment with the Chamber’s mission, and officially presented the 2016 Visionary Award to Osama El-Lissy, Deputy Administrator, on behalf of the USDA APHIS PPQ. El-Lissy accepted the award with vivacity and took the chance to apprize his colleagues present that evening. He said that part of the mission of their work was to facilitate the safe trade of commodities coming to the United States which ensures delicious, fresh and healthy fruits and vegetables year round. El-Lissy recognized the companies, importers, and vessels for their partnership commitment and understanding of market change on business and other government regulations. He ended his remarks with acknowledgement of the Chamber for the growth of this cohesive relationship to reach a shared mission.

11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile

U.S. Senator Chris Coons graciously stopped by the 11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile to share in the celebration.  The Senator emphasized the importance of job creation in the region, much of which he accredits to trade activity with Chile.

Following the close of remarks, Brisa Carmenere and a Porta Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon were raffled off to lucky guests.  Robert Palaima then closed the event and invited all guests to take a ProChile gift bag on their way out.

11th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile

The CACC would like to extend a special thank you to all of the sponsoring companies and attendees of this esteemed event, and also to Mauricio Banchieri and ProChile NY for providing gift bags and facilitating the fresh Chilean Salmon for the evening.  ¡Muchas gracias!

18th Annual “Friend of Chile” Awards Luncheon – December 3, 2015

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

caccgp_110315p_3162

On Thursday, December 3, 2015, members and friends of the Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia gathered in the Hyatt at the Bellevue’s Grand Ballroom to honor Ralph Hackett of Dayka & Hackett LLC and Derrick Jenkins of Wakefern Food Corporation at the 18th Annual “Friend of Chile” Awards Luncheon.

The celebratory luncheon kicked off with a wine reception, with exquisite Chilean wines provided by ProChile New York. Guests mingled while drinking both red and white wines from Chile before the President and Chairman of the Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce, Robert Palaima, welcomed guests into the ballroom to begin the awards ceremony. After Palaima gave welcoming remarks, guests were introduced to Consul Francisco del Campo, General Consul of Chile in New York, for remarks given on behalf of Ambassador of Chile to the United States, Juan Gabriel Valdes. Consul del Campo highlighted the positive economic impact the greater Philadelphia region has on Chile, praising the work of the Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce.

Tim Dayka then introduced his business partner, longtime friend, and Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, Ralph Hackett, Managing Member of Dayka & Hackett LLC. Ralph’s speech attributed his successes to his time spent as a student at Girard College and growing up in North Philadelphia. Ralph has had a professional career spanning forty years, thirty of which have been focused on the fresh produce industry. His industry experience began in 1985, when he joined Cal Fruit Suma, starting out as Controller then quickly being promoted to Operating Manager. Cal Fruit Suma, following its 1985 startup, was amongst the leading US importers of Chilean fruit from 1987-1989. Ralph has been the successful starter of multiple distinguished companies in the fresh produce industry, including Suma Fruit International, Pacific Trellis Fruit, and his current enterprise with business partner Tim Dayka, Dayka & Hackett LLC, which is headquartered in Reedley, California and has a full service regional office in operation at the Port in Wilmington, Delaware.

After lunch, Robert Palaima invited Robert Wonderling, CEO and President of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, to address attendees with greetings on behalf of the CACC’s affiliate organization.

Shortly after, Harold Sbrocco, Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce Board Member and former Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, introduced his friend, colleague, and Friend of Chile Award Recipient, Derrick Jenkins, Vice President of Produce and Floral of Wakefern Food Corporation. Derrick stressed the importance of the continual influence of his mentors throughout his career, stating that they gave him the motivation and guidance to succeed in the fresh produce industry. Derrick joined Wakefern in 1982. Starting as a temporary Junior Accountant, he was hired shortly after as a full-time Junior Accountant in Produce. Derrick remained in Produce, rising through the ranks in the division and working as an Analyst, Buyer, Produce Manager, Senior Produce Manager and Procurement Manager before being named Vice President of Produce and Floral. The successful Produce and Floral Division meets logistical demands, bringing products from every part of the region, country and world to grow business. Produce ships seven days a week to all stores, and the division also has buying offices in California and Florida.

The luncheon closed a huge calendar year for the Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce. The 18th Annual “Friend of Chile” Awards Luncheon was another success for 2015, following the monumental Presidential Dinner with Michele Bachelet in January and other signature events like the 10th Annual Experience the Taste of Chile and the 5th Annual Summer International Business Networking Reception.
