Nick Jooste of Cool Fresh says the fair is a good preparation for the South Holland import season. He met companies from South Africa and South American countries such as Peru. Conversations were had with retail and exporters. The fair is different from the Fruit Logistica in Berlin, Nick thinks it’s a different target audience. In Berlin, you meet 80% international audience and 20% German audience. In Madrid he estimates the international audience at 30% and the Spanish audience at 70%. He thinks you have to be more relaxed about meeting times at this fair. Berlin has a more business-like approach. In Madrid, emphasis is more on the social aspect, which makes it a more agreeable fair.

Hoogendoorn Growth Management, Bert Jan Nolden. This company develops regulation systems for horticulture. By receiving and sharing knowledge form the sector, the horticulturalist is provided with information, with the help of measuring and regulating technology. In cooperation with Svensson, the project ‘connected screening’ was set up. Svensson supplies screening canvasses with various characteristics. By adding measuring points inside and outside of the greenhouse, Hoogendoorn collects data that uses this information in its systems. Horticulturalists receive information in this manner that helps them with the so-called ‘new cultivation’ (HNT). The new cultivating means energy-conserving cultivation while at the same time achieving an optimum production. HNT uses scientific knowledge to optimally control the cultivation in temperature, humidity, CO2 measurement, light and screens, among other factors.
Pieter Mol of Svensson and Bert Jan Nolden of Hoogendoorn Growth Management are enthusiastic about their collaboration.
