Eurofresh Distribution & Fruit Logistica are sponsoring the 5th edition of the International Berry Congress in Huelva with “the largest capacity so far”, according to its organisers. More than 1,200 professionals from some 50 companies have gathered in the capital of Huelva to learn about the state of the berry sector both nationally and internationally. Filipe da Silva, head of global berry purchases at Jaguar and Sumit Saran, director of the Indian consultancy SS Associates will speak at the event lead the block of ‘work groups’ dedicated to analysing the new emerging markets for the berry sector.
Among the speakers at the event is Mamoud Dhanji, from Canada’s number-one importer, KROPS IMPORTS, who will discuss the market opportunities in North America, where the Spanish sector is hoping to reopen the market for berries.
“The Huelva Berry Congress is an unmissable event for Fruit Logistica. The berry sector is booming in Spain, its producers and buyers are expanding ever further internationally and we want to help them because the sector’s presence in Berlin is very important,” said Silvia de Juanes, communications director at Fruit Logistica for Spain and Latin America. Last year’s edition of Fruit Logistic featured the participation of 74 Andalusian companies, with 14 from the province of Huelva alone. The registration period for exhibitors who wish to participate in the next edition is open until July 31.
