Fruit Logistica will, once again, support the Spanish berries sector by sponsoring the VII International Berry Congress. The event, organized by Freshuelva, will take place on June 22 and 23.
This is the fifth time in a row that Fruit Logistica sponsors this congress. "This congress is a very special event for Fruit Logistica. The berry sector and all its auxiliary industries meet in an effort to continue working on the internationalization of Spanish berries, positioning their quality product in more and more international markets. This goal is in line with the objectives of the fair, which serves as a showcase for the entire Spanish fruit and vegetable sector," stated Silvia de Juanes, communication director of Fruit Logistica in Spain.
On this occasion, Fruit Logistica is sponsoring the presentations of the Polish company Ewa-bis and the German consultant AMI at the International Berry Congress. Their presentations will take place at the central auditorium of the Casa Colón at the beginning of the second day of the congress, on June 23.
Agnieszka Wryk, commercial director of Ewa-Bis, will be in charge of analyzing the berry sector in Poland. Wryk was in charge of the import of fresh products for Tesco in Central Europe for more than 12 years and has been in charge of the fresh and juice department in Ewa-bis for almost five years. Currently, Ewa-bis exports products to more than 30 countries around the world, ranking among the top 20 Polish exporters. It also imports quality fruit to supply retailers throughout Poland.
Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, agronomist engineer and deputy director of the Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH consultancy, AMI, will speak about the current situation and the future forecast of the German retail sector; the main market for Huelva's berry sector. The German company analyses raw materials in the different markets and publishes weekly charts, reports, and newsletters on the evolution of the berry campaign in Germany and throughout Europe.
Both Poland and Germany are markets of interest for the Spanish berry sector, which has this season could end its harvest earlier than usual due to weather issues.
The congress aims to have as many attendees as before the pandemic and expects to have a strong return by having exhibition spaces, including one for Fruit Logistica.
