PRESS RELEASE

 

Import Promotion Desk will hold a IPD Virtual B2B Event Fresh Produce on the 10-28 May 2021. It also opens up new procurement markets for European buyers: mangos, papayas, pomegranates and avocados as well as ginger, turmeric, sweet potatoes and fresh herbs – these are just a few examples from the wide range of products offered by Import Promotion Desk (IPD). Due to the cancellation of the Fruit Logistica Special Edition, the Import Promotion Desk (IPD) – the initiative for import promotion – decided at short notice to present the diverse range of fresh fruits and vegetables from developing and emerging countries to European importers in individual video meetings.

Traders will have the opportunity to meet companies and get to know products from Colombia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ecuador, Ghana, Peru and Ukraine. IPD’s free matchmaking services are open to all European importers: IPD experts match buyers from Europe with producers from developing and emerging countries.

Free Import Promotion Desk service

As an import promotion initiative, IPD supports importers in their sourcing, neutrally and free of charge. IPD connects them to selected producers of fresh fruit and vegetables who meet the GLOBALG.A.P. standards or the requirements of the EU organic label. The IPD companies are visited and carefully evaluated. In addition to certifications, IPD experts also consider criteria such as product quality, export capability and capacity. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, IPD experts are in close contact with producers in partner countries and continue to screen exporters. This way, importers can be sure that they are dealing with reliable producers.

Virtual B2B Event Fresh Produce

In the context of the IPD virtual B2B event, IPD will present more than 30 carefully selected  companies. European importers will find, for example, mangoes, papayas and pineapples from producers in Ghana. Or grapes, oranges, lemons, strawberries and fresh herbs, spinach, peppers and garlic offered by suppliers from Egypt and Ethiopia.

The range of subtropical and tropical fruits is enriched by exhibitors from Ecuador, Colombia and Peru, such as passion fruit, pitahayas, bananas, physalis as well as avocados. In addition, companies from Peru offer sweet potato as well as fresh ginger and turmeric in organic quality. Producers from Ukraine present sweet potatoes, Hokkaido pumpkin, plums, peaches or blueberries.
