Bioconservacion at Macfrut 2017
Thanks to our Italian partner Graziani Packaging, Bioconservacion was present at Macfrut 2017, the International Trade Fair for the Fruit and Vegetable Sector held by CESENA FIERA from 10 to 12 May 2017 at the Rimini Expo Centre in Rimini (Italy).
The main theme of this new edition of Macfrut was strawberries, as we can see in its presentation image. As a result, several activities were organised within the heading of 'Strawberry Days' in collaboration with the main Italian and Chinese strawberry producers. China is becoming an increasingly strategic market for Italian and other European fruit and vegetable products.
The main novelties in Macfrut 2017 were, on the one hand, the creation of an organic section, given the continuous growth of this segment at a European and international level, and the 'Macfrut Gourmet', on the other, which is a space devoted to artisanal companies engaged in processing high quality fruit for specialised retailers and distributors.
Graziani Packaging, with headquarters in Italy, is Bioconservacion's distributor in Italy and it has a production unit in Spain, as well as presence in 40 other countries. Its main business is the development and marketing of packaging for the fruit and vegetable food sector, as well as the industrial sector.
The presence of Bioconservacion in Macfrut 2017, together with Graziani Packaging, provided us with the opportunity of establishing trade agreements in different European countries and consolidating our relationship with our Italian partner.
