Macfrut 2018: increases the foreign interest for Italian fruit and vegetables

In Rimini these days more than 55 thousand square meters of surface area are being set up, a net 10% more than last year, for the new edition of Macfrut: the international fair dedicated to the fruit and vegetable sector.

Macfrut is back on the scene with really interesting numbers: in fact, 1,100 exhibitors take part in the professional exhibition, of which 25% represent foreign countries. 1,500 international buyers were invited (four years ago there were only 250) and 50 events were scheduled on the calendar. The 20 meetings to approach the fair, which worked to involve other markets for this spring appointment, also contributed to this result.

The numbers are excellent for the Italian fruit and vegetable market, especially as regards exports, which reached € 5.1 billion in 2017, registering an important + 2.5% more than in the previous reference period.

Macfrut will fill with quality, innovation and colors, the natural ones of fruit and vegetables, from 9 to 11 May, the Rimini exhibition center. Moreover, thanks to a collaboration with Cibus, which will kick off these days in Parma (from May 7th to 10th), 30 international Top Buyers in the food supply chain will be present in Rimini along with major exponents of the European large-scale retail trade.

Tra le novità principali si trova sicuramente “AcquaCampus”, uno spazio dinamico, studiato per creare dimostrazioni per vedere in azione impianti di irrigazione di ultima generazione, proposti dalle migliori aziende sul mercato.

Molta attenzione sarà dedicata anche alle pratiche, alle macchine e alle tecniche di pre-raccolta, con uno spazio di oltre 15.000 metri che fa riferimento a “Macfrut Field Solution”.

Il 10 e l’11 Maggio è fissato il primo evento europeo che mette al centro due frutti esotici, come il Mango e l’Avocado, e tutta la filiera di produttori e di importatori ad essi legati. L’appuntamento ha carattere mondiale e si chiama “Tropical Fruit Congress”.
