To attend Macfrut

Counterseasonal produce by Argentinian companies

Argentinian companies return to Macfrut: the Italian-Argentinian Chamber of Commerce in Italy and Sistema MITA, the agreement between the University of Parma and the University of Buenos Aires, are the promoters of the Argentinian stand at Macfrut. Five companies from the South American countries will attend and showcase interesting "counter-seasonal" products for the European market. Below is the list of the companies present and their main characteristics.

FECOFE – Federation of Federated Cooperatives, is the Federation that deals with the commercialization - both national and international - of the products coming from the associated cooperatives. The products include kiwifruits, pecan nuts, concentrated citrus fruit juices, spices, yerba mate and peanuts.

Ecco Argentina – CoopeKiwi LTDA cooperative: the company provides packaging and marketing services to its associates. CoopeKiwi holds the GlobalGap certification for its organic kiwifruit exported to Brazil, Uruguay and Europe.

Jucofer Coop is a cooperative from Entre Rios that deals with the processing and commercialization of citrus fruit products such as concentrated juices and essential oils obtained from oranges, tangerines, lemons and grapefruits.

Establecimiento Frutmira - Empaque de Frutos Altamira is a company from the Mendoza province that also supplies garlic, Chandler nuts and oregano. It holds the organic certification.

Terruño de la Patagonia is an exporter from the Rio Negro province in Patagonia. It holds the Global Gap certification and supplies pears (Williams, Red Bartlett, Packhams, Danjou varieties) and apples (Gala, Red Delicious, Pink Lady, Granny Smith varieties).

Everything was organized thanks to Sistema M.I.T.A, which involves the Food Technology Master course that has trained over a thousand professionals from the food sector in Argentina and throughout Latin America over the past few years. Trainers include professors, Italian and Argentinian researchers, as well as specialists from the main food industries.

Stand 187 in Hall B5 at Macfrut (May 8-10, 2024).
