The European Packaging Forum: Congress & Get-together on May 14, 2020

The European Packaging Forum is a precisely tailored congress event for the fruit and vegetable industry, focusing on marketing, sustainability, traceability, consumer and trade acceptance, innovative solutions, logistics, protection and functionality, hygiene and law. These are the topics that the experts from all stages of the value chain will be discussing on 14 May 2020 in Düsseldorf at Hotel Nikko Düsseldorf. This will be followed by the DFHV Annual Conference on 15 May 2020. 

The organisers – Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft (AMI) and Fruchthandel Magazin – will be addressing a central topic in the sector, which is not only being strongly discussed in the entire value chain, but also in society. A press release stated: “Since the recent pictures of dead whales and polluted seas make this topic difficult to be ignored. We want to tackle the challenges and take a close look at them in order to discuss and sketch out alternatives and solutions with the competent experts in the end and thus give the industry new impetus. We want to bring together the most important market partners in the European sector in order to objectify the discussion and jointly develop new ideas and strategies for contemporary solutions and offers for the entire value chain.”

About 300 delegates from 50 federal and regional retail chains are attending the Fresh Food Russia Forum being held November 13-14 at Moscow’s Kosrton Hotel.

Dedicated to fresh grocery and in-store produce, the event also includes opportunities to join a special negotiations session with commercial directors, purchasing directors and buyers from retail chains from Kaliningrad to Khabarovsk.

According to the Fresh Food Russia Forum organisers, the recent US and EU food import ban by Russia means the country’s retail chains are in search of new suppliers. “They are looking for reliable international partners.”

“Russia was the leading retail market by turnover in Europe in 2013. Two thirds of Russian customers are willing to pay more for fresh grocery, according to recent surveys by consulting firms,” they said.
