Leading International Experts to Present Successful
Solutions for Fruit and Vegetable Production and Marketining
at Sofia Forum
An international conference, InteliFresh 2020, is bringing together in Sofia fruit and vegetable producers, major retail chains, Bulgarian and foreign traders and processors, as well as providers of technology and services. They will discuss solutions for high quality production and successful marketing of Bulgarian fruits and vegetables.
Due on January 31 at Sofia’s Inter Expo Centre, it will be the third edition of the forum organized with support from the Embassy of the Netherlands and with the participation of leading experts from Italy and Hungary.
Over the last five years, fruit and vegetable fields in Bulgaria have been expanding and so gas production, say the InteliFresh organizers, InteliAgro. Exports have been increasing and quality Bulgarian produce more often finds its place on the stands of the country’s retail chains.
Piet Schotel from Fruit Consultancy Europe (The Netherlands) will introduce participants to potential profitable market niches in Europe. Experts from two of the largest fruit nurseries in Italy – Salvi and TopPlant will share insight about the varieties which conquer the European market today and the latest achievements in the selection and production of planting material. Leading Bulgarian and international technology providers will share their experience in fruit and vegetable care, innovations for precision and automated production and market preparation.
A big part of the Bulgarian fruit and vegetable production still goes for processing and this industry is among the highlights of the forum. The biggest processor in Bulgaria – Michele Santorelli will speak about the trends in the cultivation of cherries and plums for processing, and also present a joint project with Italian giant Ferrero for the development of hazel plantations in Bulgaria.
InteliFresh will provide more than 400 participants with opportunities for direct business contacts with all forum companies in the dedicated B2B meeting area.
