Upon request of European importers and Mexican exporters, UPM and Holland House Mexico are organizing the digital business event MX-NL Fruit Matchmaking on 20 - 21 January, 2021.
The aim of the program is to create sustainable and valuable relationships between growers and exporters of fruits in Mexico, including: avocado, mango, berries, citrus; and Dutch importers who focus on the Dutch and European markets.
Many fruit companies' representatives normally travel the world frequently to visit new suppliers, producers and clients, and schedule appointments during relevant trade fairs. The outbreak of Covid-19 has made this impossible. Seeking new ways to do business, UPM has received many requests from both importers and exporters alike to assist in finding new potential suppliers and customers. Taking advantage of the harvest seasons for fruits, such as avocados, mangos, berries, and citrus, UPM and Holland House Mexico, the MX-NL bilateral Chamber of Commerce, have joined efforts in this specialized matchmaking program for the industry.
The program is open for all importers of The Netherlands and Europe in general, and for producers from Mexico and neighbour Guatemala, the latter being a special invitee to the program. The program is exclusively for qualified producers and exporters who count with all necessary certificates for export to Europe (Global Gap, Global Grasp, SMETA, Organic, Fair Trade).
The virtual event will take place on a specialized online platform designed to integrate industry insights with ample time for personalized matchmaking appointments. The appointments can be scheduled by the participant or can be prearranged by UPM and HHM. Upon registration, importers will receive an individual access code to that allows to start networking immediately.
Registration for Dutch and European importers of fruits is free. The registration form and additional information can be found here.
Please note that registration closes on 15th of January 2021. Registered participants will be able to start planning their appointments from January 11th onwards through the online platform.
