A rise in the number of international participants at the Tropical Fruit Congress

3 April 2018

The number of international participants at the first European summit on avocados and mangoes at Macfrut 2018 is on the increase. At the Tropical Fruit Congress, to be held at the Rimini Expo Centre on 10-11 May, of the 150 plus registered by 20 March 80% are from abroad.

A large number of participants come from South America, which has always been a major producer of exotic fruits, so much so that it accounts for 62% of the supply of avocados in Europe (source: World Avocado Organization). Other countries participating include the Dominican Republic, Colombia – the partner country of Macfrut 2018 – Peru, Brazil and the USA, as well as a number of African countries: Cameroon, Kenya, Sudan, Ethiopia and Zambia.

There is also great interest from Europe, where the consumption of these products has reached double digits in many EU countries (to name a few, Sweden, France, Germany, Portugal and Spain). Spain, the leading European producer of mangoes and avocados, will be widely present at the Tropical Fruit Congress with Frutas Montosa, Hortosabor, Reyes Gutierrez, Trops and Anecoop.
Many European importers have already registered for the event, including a large attendance from the Netherlands with Nature's Pride, Liquidseal Fruit, Jaguar Fruit and Hall's Bv; from Great Britain with Ripe Now, Grencell and The Avocado Company; from France with Thomas Nelson and Fruitrop; from Belgium with Special Fruit.

Last but not least, about 15 international newspaper journalists have been accredited.

Moreover, all congress participants will be provided with a Yearbook that includes data on mango and avocado production and consumption, with a special section dedicated to the key players in the supply chain.

Info. The event is open to a limited number of participants (up to 300 professionals). The registration fee is 100 Euros. To register, please go to www.tropicalfruitcongress.com.
