Big opportunities for Latin American countries in AsiaAfter a crowded first day, the second day at Asia Fruit Logistica wasn't much quieter and attracted many visitors from around the globe.
The South American country is very close in getting a green light for the export of blueberries to China. This show they have noticed that there is coming demand for the soft fruit. Although the show is located in Asia, visitors from Europe are interested in these products as well.
Indian visitors were looking for apples and showed their interest in those from Turkey. Other Turkish exhibitors mentioned they see a higher demand for oranges than lemons this year.
Of course they are promoting their bananas! The Asian market is very important, as there are often issues to deal with. Problems like low production, lower quality, among other problems. Because of this, many Asian customers are looking towards Ecuador. The country is very active in opening new market and they have laid there eyes upon the Korean market.
New Chinese exhibition
Another topic that is rising during the show is China Fruit Logistica. Some exporters expressed their excitement that there is finally a "China" Fruit Logistica, but they were worried at the same time. They think it may lead to an oversupply and that visitors will focus on only one event.
Peruvian Superfoods brand
The "Superfoods Peru" campaign was launched in February at Fruit Logistica trade show in Berlin, and its Asian equivalent was chosen for its new launch in this part of the world.
Superfoods Peru products are drawing the attention of Asian fresh food markets. In this sense, Peruvian speakers and users of the brand expect to develop and explore more business opportunities with other countries at the event.
Peru has emerged as the sixth exporter of fresh fruits to China and is set to climb some positions in the coming years, thus becoming one of the principal suppliers of fresh fruits and vegetables not only to China but to Japan, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore.
