Macfrut 2018 ends with excellent results

Macfrut closes with 43 thousand appearances

The recently concluded edition of Macfrut, a fair that involves the entire fruit and vegetable supply chain, has registered very important numbers to continue this event in the best possible way and make it even more interesting for its audience.​
43 thousand people attended the fair, in Rimini from 9 to 11 May 2018. 25% of visitors come from abroad.

Among the goals scored by this edition of Macfrut there is certainly the debut of Tropical Fruit Congress, an event that has put the tropical fruits at the center, which has generated the attention of 300 professional operators and the possibility of continuing the performance also in the next edition of the fair.

Excellent attention found in the demonstration area of "Water Campus" that wanted to tell the technological evolution of irrigation of the fields.

The fair has given importance to all sectors of the production chain that concerns the fruit and vegetable world, focusing on packaging and packaging, which are increasingly environmentally friendly, recyclable and sustainable, on technology, machinery and products.

Yes, there are interesting innovations in terms of product: among these, the white strawberry (the proposal is Rk Growers) definitely stands out, with a very full-bodied flavor, which comes from Spain and will soon be cultivated also in Piedmont. Camone, instead, is the tomato that lasts intact for up to 20 days, maintaining all the organoleptic properties, and that is among the foods awarded by the fair contest (proposal of L'orto di Eleonora).

Among the winners of the Macfrut Innovation Awards 2018 there are also new pyramid-shaped exhibitors with a white wood effect, which highlight the promotional islands, guaranteeing greater elegance and cleanness to the furnishings of the outlets offering fruit and vegetables (the proposal is Polymer Logistics , bronze medal in the contest). All strictly recyclable and sustainable. As well as the bins with folding doors, save space and save time and costs, completely reusable and environmentally friendly (Penta Plast proposal).

Moreover, soon it will be possible to create small greenhouses directly at home or in their own accommodation or business, thanks to containers and cabinets that work together with smart devices, able to monitor the needs of the cultivated plants, and LED lights suitable for the situation.

The enthusiasm and satisfaction of the organizers is high and for this reason we are already talking about the next edition, which is scheduled for May 2019, from Wednesday 8 to Friday 10.
