Merken is now being marketed in the USA!! This is truly amazing to me. I remember that in '65 the Mapuche were selling it individually door to door. Northern Chileans couldn't find it when they came to Puren. In the 90's Catholic University Temuco started a project to standardize its production and export it. Today it is imported by Zocalo Gourmet, Seattle WA. It is produced by Chilean Gourmet. I have written to UCT hoping to find out if our small co-op had some small part to play here. I do know that Michael Turner who followed me in '66 continued the co-op. He said it continued to have success.
