9th edition of iFresh opens in Shanghai

The 9th iFresh Fruit & Vegetable Expo launched today in Shanghai. The morning of the opening ceremony was very crowded with visitors and exhibitors.

A large number of Egyptian growers and exporters are showcasing fresh Egyptian citrus, pomegranate and grapes. Egyptian grapes have recently received market access to China. It is expected that an official signing ceremony will be held in Egypt later in November with officials from both countries. Australia has secured market access for its nectarines, and Summerfruit Australia brought a box with fresh nectarines that recently arrived in Shanghai.

IFresh gives a coherent overview of the Chinese fresh produce landscape. Domestic exhibitors range from growers to traders to suppliers. There are companies from the South of the country including regions such as Hainan who have tropical fruits including mango and dragon fruit, as well as growers from other parts of China that are exhibiting pears, apples, melons and kiwifruit, among others.

The supply side also seems to be taking off fast with numerous packaging and sorting companies, logistics suppliers etc. In China, online and offline sales channels compete, the exhibition gives the possibility to meet with both.

The IFresh Fruit and Vegetable Expo will last until Wednesday afternoon, November the 16th.
