"Kuno Jacobs, BTO: "Fair was 40% bigger than last year's"

Ukraine: International interest in Fresh Produce Ukraine 2012

Last November saw the second instalment of the Fresh Produce Ukraine 2012, in the International Exhibition Center in Kiev. Project manager Kuno Jacobs announced that the three-day event, set up in collaboration with City of Dreams and Fruit-Inform and sponsored by the Chilean Fresh Fruit Association, was a great success.

“The fair was 35 to 40% bigger than last year’s,” says Jacobs. “We were proud to welcome visitors from Austria, , Belgium, Czech Republic, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Russia, Spain, Syria, Sweden, the Netherlands, Turkey and the United Kingdom. With a 81% satisfaction rate of exhibitors, and 4671 commercial visitors I think we can call this fair a success."

This year’s conference was called 'Fruits and Vegetables of Ukraine - New Challenge'. ‘New Challenge’ was added to the theme because Ukrainian growers have been coping with low prices for two years now. Many producers were unable to create sufficient turnover in past seasons. Thus the issue at hand was intensely discussed on forums and panels.

Jacobs expects an even bigger event next year. “The last two instalments have proven to be very successful, and subscriptions for next year’s edition are already coming in.”
