Jupiter sponsors the 2018 conference at AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong ahead of Asia Fruit Logistica

As Asia’s leading fresh produce conference Asia Fruit Congress is a key date in the annual calendar of the fresh fruit and vegetable industry, and Jupiter will not only be attending the 2018 conference but is going one step further.

The Congress, which this year is celebrating its 20th anniversary, takes place at AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong, on September 4, just a day before the opening of the three-day trade show Asia Fruit Logistica 2018, which will run from September 5-7.

With our Asia-Pacific office based in Hong Kong, we’ve already demonstrated our confidence in this substantial and ever-growing fresh produce market, with forecasts predicting that it will continue to grow annually by around 6.3%.

“Extremely proud” to sponsor Asia Fruit Congress 2018

But now we’re “extremely proud” to reveal that we are making further investment in this important market by sponsoring the Asia Fruit Congress for the first time.

Bringing businesses together in Hong Kong for 20 years, the Congress, which attracts more than 400 delegates from over 35 countries, tracks and debates the latest trends in Asia’s fresh produce trade market as well as consumer behaviour.

Our CEO Mark Tweddle said: “The fresh produce market in Asia Pacific is one of the fastest growing and biggest in the world and we’re delighted to be a part of it.

“It’s a very exciting time for Jupiter as our international sales growth, has seen us ranked 17 in the Sunday Times’ International Track 200 this year.

“We are continuing to build on this success and develop further as a global grower and trader as we introduce exciting and pioneering new products onto the fresh produce market.

“The Asia Fruit Congress represents a perfect opportunity to discuss the latest trends in existing and emerging markets across Asia Pacific, and we are thrilled to be sponsoring it for the very first time in its 20th anniversary year.”

Jupiter trio to attend Asia Fruit Congress and Asia Fruit Logistica

Both Asia Fruit Congress 2018 and Asia Fruit Logistica 2018 will be attended by Allan Lo, our General Manager in Asia Pacific, based in our Hong Kong office; our founder Group MD Mark Tweddle; and Josh Lait, our Trade Marketing Manager.

With Asia Fruit Logistica 2018 set to be bigger and better than ever, according to organisers, we will also be following suit by having our biggest ever stand yet to date at this premier continental fresh produce show.

And, as we’re keen to support sports and charities in the communities in which our employees live, we are also proud to be sponsoring this year’s Fat Boy Tens Rugby and Golf Tournament, which will also be held in Hong Kong on September 7 and 8, through our Nancy Tweddle Foundation.
