Photo report Fruit Logistica 2012

More than 56,000 visitors from 139 countries proved that Fruit Logisitca is still the biggest trade fair in the fresh produce world. The visitor figures remained the same as last year which is noteworthy after years of continual growth in visitor numbers. Around 80% of the visitors came from outside Germany. The number of exhibitors was bigger than ever before with 2,537 coming from 84 countries.

For the fifth time FreshConex was held in parallel to the main event, this is for the fresh cut part of the industry. Here there was 80 exhibitors from 15 countries. Fruit Logistica started in 1993 with an area of 4,000 m2 and 100 exhibitors. These days the exhibition covers 112,000 m2. According Dr. Christian Göke, the secret of the trade fair's success is that quality has always come before quantity.



The Fruit Logistica Innovation Award was won by the sweet and seedless pepper, Angello, which is grown in Spain, Holland as well as in Italy. The second prize went to Rijk Zwaan for the social salad network Lovemysalad.com and BUD Holland came third with the Achacha fruit.
