Our 2019 show stand was buzzing
We had a great time at the 2019 Fruit Logistica in Berlin with both the popular fresh produce trade exhibition itself and our stand, being bigger and better than ever!
Show organisers have revealed that this year saw over 78,000 trade visitors coming from 135 countries to attend the event – with 3,200 exhibitors hailing from 90 countries.
Our stand was particularly busy this year and constantly buzzing with visitors from across the world interested to hear about our latest news, pioneering developments and to sample our ARRA and Maylen® table grapes.
While this year was the first our CEO Mark couldn’t join us in Berlin, due to a sports industry, his cardboard cut-out and digital presence via Zoom video link meant the show went on as normal.
A great global business platform
Our Procurement Director Damian said: “People come to the fair from across the globe, from America to Australia. As a global business platform for the fruit trade, Fruit Logistica is one not to miss and it was a great show for our team to further build on existing contacts and make new ones.”
This year also marked the premiere of the event’s first Global Women’s Network which underlined the importance of women in the fresh produce sector. Our Director Yvonne, Head of Marketing Kirsty and Head of Logistics Francesca, said it was a great event to be a part of and a wonderful opportunity to exchange experiences.
In addition to the Global Women’s Network we attended seminars and workshops on subjects such as plastic free futures and global logistics.
Will we see you next time?
We’ll be back at Berlin Fruit Logistica in 2020 so, if we didn’t see you this year, perhaps we’ll see you next year when the show will run from February 5-7.
