To strengthen exports

Germany becomes official partner country of Fruit Logistica

Fruit Logistica celebrates its 25th anniversary on 8-10 February 2017. Honouring this occasion, the host country will serve for the first time as the partner country. Germany is Europe's biggest consumer market. At the same time, German fruit and vegetables are increasingly becoming a sought-after export commodity. This is due in part to the strict quality controls on German products and the reliability of the trading partners. Another factor is the commitment of the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) to entering new markets and promoting bilateral trade.

Reflecting the partner country's slogan "Germany – Your Garden", the companies forming the German Association of Fruit and Vegetable Growers (BVEO) have created the website The site offers international Fruit Logistica trade visitors a business platform, affording a comprehensive overview of the innovative range of products supplied by German companies.Fruit Logistica trade visitors from around the world will find German growers at the BVEO joint stand in Hall 20.

Germany is Europe's biggest sales market for fresh fruit and vegetables. Nearly eight million tonnes of fresh produce, including potatoes, are purchased by German households each year. Another two million tonnes of fresh produce are consumed away from the home. With an estimated total of EUR 14.4 billion, Germany also reports the highest level of consumer spending on fresh fruit and vegetables in Europe. Germany imports vegetables primarily from its European neighbors. Tropical and exotic fruits are supplied by a wide variety of producers from all over the world.
