Spain, while off-farm activities will include a
fantastic opportunity for growers to connect with
multiple sectors of the fresh produce industry at
the Fruit Logistica.
The trade fair will allow tour participants the
chance to network and learn from international
industry leaders at the event, which offers the
sectors connected with fresh fruit and vegetables
an opportunity to present their products across
the entire chain, from growing to point-of-sale.
In addition to the emphasis on the products
themselves, Fruit Logistica will also present the
technical expertise required for the logistical aspect
of the fresh produce industry, as well as covering
handling issues at point-of-sale in the retail sector.
Furthermore, the service market -- with
information technology solutions for logistics
management, transport company services, green
grocery marketing expertise, education and
training -- will feature. Trade forums on topical
issues relating to fruit and vegetable marketing
will provide growers with an opportunity to catch
up on the latest developments and ideas.
