Agroexpo 2020 to be held in Cyprus on 23-25 October

Agroexpo 2020 to be held in Cyprus on 23-25 October

The AgroExpo exhibition was organised in 2019 for the sixth consecutive year with great success. Over 25,000 attended the event at which there were 50+ exhibitors, more than happy with their participation and also with the whole organisation. Business professionals and the general public had the opportunity to see and examine products, materials and services and discuss trade issues with the participating companies.

This year, the organisers will do their utmost to persuade more companies to participate since this trade exhibition directly relates to their business and it should be looked upon as a great opportunity to strengthen the ties between buyers and sellers. The AgroExpo exhibition 2020 will be staged in Pavilions No. 5 and No. 4 at the Cyprus International Fair Grounds and also in outdoor exhibition facilities. The exhibition is scheduled for 23-25 October 2020. The participation interest has so far been tremendous and we expect to organise the exhibition with more than 70 exhibitors.

At the same time we are doing everything possible to increase and encourage trade visitors to attend the exhibition. This exhibition after all belongs to the farmers and related end users and their mass presence has already made the AgroExpo exhibition a very important yearly specific event.

In operation since 1990, Alion is a dedicated packer and exporter offering a vast range of fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables from Cyprus, all its own production. Alion owns 8 ha of greenhouses and 50 ha of field crops. Since 2008, the company has been run from its Pera Chorio Nisou packing station, which offers a very convenient area in which to select, store, pack and preserve vegetables and fresh herbs.  “Our main goal is to demonstrate the growth of agricultural exports  from Cyprus, using expertise and innovation to supply high quality fresh produce,” said CEO Philip Philippou. Alion offers a full range of fresh herbs for year-round export, such as green and red basil, chives, marjoram, melissa, mint, oregano, curly parsley, flat parsley, rosemary, tarragon and thyme, as well as a range of leafy vegetables including rocolla. From May until November it also produces okra, marrows and, for the first time this season, the aubergine variety Ravayia. Meanwhile, from January until December, Alion also supplies green beans, chillies, colocass, cucumbers and a large lettuce range. Alion controls the full supply chain from the farm to the importing client at destination. The company grows its vegetables itself in its own extensive greenhouses, then packs and exports them with a full quality control procedure, ensuring they are given the most careful handling and meet product specifications.  Alion exports to more than 25 countries, mainly the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland, Hungary, Greece, Latvia, Estonia, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Finland, Russia, Singapore, Dubai and Kuwait.
