From 4-6 December 2018 the International Exhibition Centre (IEC) in Kyiv will host the 7th edition of Fresh Business Expo; the only trade event in Ukraine that exclusively targets the complete chain of fresh produce.
The exhibition has been organized since 2011. Every year the exhibition gathers a great number of Ukrainian and international horticultural suppliers and industry professionals. For coming the edition, the organisers are very pleased to welcome more than 100 companies from 10 countries worldwide.
The Ukrainian fresh produce industry is developing fast and the Free Trade Agreement between Ukraine and the EU is contributing to this fast development of the fruit & vegetable sector in Ukraine. Many growers have found new export markets within the EU and Ukrainian growers are implementing new technologies in order to meet new standards.
Ukraine’s output levels make it the fifth largest fruit, vegetable, and berry-producing nation in Europe.
With the Free Trade Agreement with the EU now being in place Ukraine has found itself a huge new export market. In the first half of 2018, Ukraine exported goods and services to EU countries worth USD 9.8 billion, which was five times more than to Russia. Agricultural products are amongst the main products being exported to the EU.
This year the Ukrainian economy will grow with 3.5%, for 2019 a growth of GDP of 2.5% is being forecast.
One of the key success factors of the exhibition is the conference “Fruits & Vegetables of Ukraine”. The 3-day conference and exhibition attract leading growers, traders, key supermarket buyers, importers, exporters, processors as well as input and equipment suppliers.
The first two days of the conference focus on all aspects of the Fresh Produce Industry such as market information, trends & forecasts and technical information about the production of fruits & vegetables.
The third day of the conference is dedicated to the successful trade forum in which supermarket chains, importers, growers and exporters will participate.
