”Fresh Business Expo in Ukraine preparing for its 7th edition

From 4-6 December 2018 Fresh Business Expo Ukraine will kick off its 7th edition, the exhibition will once again take place at the International Exhibition Centre (IEC) in Kiev.

Fresh Business Expo Ukraine, which took place from 5 – 7 December 2017, welcomed 3.744 trade visitors and 115 companies from 10 countries worldwide, participated in the event occupying some 2.500 m2.

Fresh Business Expo is the only trade event in Ukraine that exclusively targets the complete chain of Fresh Produce and has proven again to be a great additional marketing tool for companies to establish and strengthen the necessary business in Ukraine and CIS Countries.

With the Free Trade Agreement between the EU and Ukraine now finally being in place the organisers notice an increasing interest for the Ukrainian market.

Exports from Ukraine to the EU are increasing rapidly and the production of Fruits & Vegetables is showing significant growth.

In order to be able to export to the EU the Ukrainian growers will need to invest in order to meet European quality standards. This offers great potential to Western suppliers of Greenhouse Technology, Post Harvest Handling, Packaging, Seeds & Plants and other related products.

Given this enormous potential the organisers are very pleased to have signed an exclusive partnership agreement with IFWexpo Heidelberg GmbH from Germany.

IFWexpo Heidelberg GmbH is one of the leading trade fair organisers worldwide in the agrifood sector and acts as organizer of German Pavilions abroad on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and the German Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture. Their key service is to offer support to single exhibitors or joint presentations.

IFWexpo’s key markets are in Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and Iran with new market places such as India, China, and Bulgaria having been added in the last years.

Thanks to the long-term experience, IFWexpo can react quickly to market developments and offer new and attractive exhibition places to export oriented companies. Exhibitors will profit from profound knowledge of markets and exhibition places as well as from an international network that ensures successful preparation and realisation of trade fairs.

Within the framework of this partnership agreement IFWexpo Heidelberg GmbH will promote and sell the exhibition Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia and Slovenia.

The organisers of Fresh Business Expo are convinced that IFWexpo Heidelberg GmbH will bring added value to both exhibitors as well as visitors.

One of the key success factors of the exhibition is the conference “Fruits & Vegetables of Ukraine”, which is organized by Fruit Inform within the framework of the exhibition.

The conference and exhibition attracted leading growers, traders, key supermarket buyers, importers, exporters, processors as well as input and equipment suppliers.
