Fresh Produce Ukraine:

"Ukrainian consumption of fruits & vegetables almost doubled over the past 10 years”"

Ukrainian consumers have become more and more interested in buying healthy alternatives to add to their diet. Consumers are looking at the domestic harvest season to buy their fruits and vegetables, even though more than half of the fruit sold in Ukraine is imported. Spain, Italy and Greece are the top three suppliers in Ukraine, with a 50-70% share of imports.

Although at this point during the harvest season more fruit is sold on open street markets, the share of these markets are decreasing which means grocery stores have an increasing market share in offering the customer a wide range of fruits. Fresh Produce Ukraine offers a complete platform for this growing and promising sector.

Fresh Produce is being organised in conjunction with the two day conference “Fruits & Vegetables of Ukraine”, this conference has been organised by Fruit Inform for the past 9 years and has built up a very solid reputation. One of the important topics of the conference is the trade forum in which more than 30 supermarket chains and importers participated during the last edition. On this trade forum day direct business negotiations within the International Trade Forum are made possible. This forum will be attended by fruit and vegetable suppliers that are also exhibiting at Fresh Produce, leading importers from Ukraine and buyers from Ukrainian and Russian supermarkets.

Official participations from Greece (Ministry of Agriculture), Italy (Italian Institute of Foreign Trade) and Turkey (The Turkish Citrus Promotion Group) have already been confirmed.

Fresh Produce Ukraine is unique as it is the only specialised international event focused on fruit & vegetable growing, post-harvest handling technologies and trade in Ukraine and other CIS countries.

Fresh Produce Ukraine is aimed at producers of fruits and vegetables as well as companies that supply all the elements of technology, post-harvest handling, storage and packaging of fruits and vegetables and exporters of fresh produce supply.
