Press release: Eurofruit Congress Southern Hemisphere

Eurofruit Congress Southern Hemisphere announces an unmissable 2011 programme.

The Southern Hemisphere’s leading fresh produce conference event takes place in Lima, Peru, on 9-11 November and promises to be another premier event following on from last year’s edition, which saw over 220 delegates from 21 countries convene in Uruguay.

This year’s conference programme will feature a supplier spotlight on host nation Peru, with speakers set to discuss what the country's rapidly developing fresh produce industry has to offer the Northern Hemisphere market. Leading the discussion will be Fernando Cillóniz from Inform@cción, the Lima-based research and consultancy agency, which provides information on Peru’s agricultural sector.

A delegation of senior-level, international speakers will also offer tips on how to stay ahead in the highly competitive retail sourcing and marketing arena, plus an insight into what the major markets are demanding from growers and exporters when it comes to sustainability, logistics and packaging.

Other hot topics up for discussion will include a look at the opportunities for new growth in certain product categories and market sectors within traditional export destinations like North America and Europe, as well as the potential to supply alternative markets in Asia, Eastern Europe and Russia.

Staying ahead of the game with the most up-to-date and comprehensive knowledge is vital in today’s competitive global market. Long-term business success also comes down to the ability to make the right kind of relationships with the right kind of people.

Eurofruit Congress Southern Hemisphere offers ample networking opportunities to ensure you make lasting contacts with the best fresh produce business professionals in the region and beyond.
