The Macfrut management is working at full speed to organise the trade fair, with a constantly growing interest from companies in the sector. In fact, as of today, 100 new exhibitors have confirmed their participation at Macfrut, the international trade fair for the fruit and vegetable sector organised by Cesena Fiera to be held from 14 to 16 September in the pavilions of Rimini Fiera. Leading businesses will be representing the entire supply chain, in addition to the excellent companies that were already present in the last edition, occupying altogether 95% of the spaces sold so far.

For packaging, the usually large number of participants will also include Ifco, Euro Pool System, JcoPlastic, Plastic Company, Schoeller-Allibert, CiessePapier and Cicrespi.
As for technologies, which have always been Macfrut’s strength, the great presence of major European producers will be enriched by the arrival of Siropac, Sgorbati and Retarder.
The pre-harvest segment is also growing, in fact it will occupy 2 out of 7 pavilions at Rimini Fiera. Other new participants will be Esasem, Green Has Italy, Sipcam, Top Seeds and Vilmorin. For the irrigation segment, instead, Rivulis, Irritec and Irrigazione Veneta.
