Wednesday and Thursday's programme comprised of two parts, namely science and commercialisation. Congress participants were pleased that they could choose between presentations about various topics. The atmosphere was very positive. There were more than 300 participants.
Although it was a congress about strawberries, it was clear that strawberries form part the 'berry' family. It is, however, noticeable that there is a large difference in price between these products in the supermarket. Strawberries are generally quite a lot cheaper than, for example, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. This is due to, among other things, larger production volumes. Another important question during the event was: can strawberries still compete with other berries, such as blueberries?
Articles from presenters in the commercial part of the programme will follow later this week.
