GFI at the Fruit Logistica 2015
From February 4 to 6 around 65,000 professional visitors from over 135 countries came to look and learn at the biggest fair event the international fruit trade has ever seen - the Fruit Logistica. Some 2,800 exhibitors from 83 countries presented the entire range of goods and services offered by every link in the trade chain, and a great many innovations too.
GFI German fresh food markets – a firm fixture at Fruit Logistica
Germany’s fresh food markets have been a firm fixture at the Fruit Logistica for more than 10 years, recommending themselves to visitors as reliable business partners. At the GFI joint stand they showcase their expertise in the task of providing modern, diversified and top-quality hubs for the trade in fresh produce.
Uwe Kluge, chairman of the GFI board and managing director of Bremen Wholesale Market, returned a positive verdict about GFI’s time at this year’s fair: “Public response once again proved how important our stand is as a platform where our many wholesalers and importers can communicate with us and others. It offers a real marketplace for in-depth talks and negotiations with customers and suppliers from all over the world. Therefore we shall be using the same concept for our stand - “Diversity in Unity ” - when we return in 2016.”
As before, the GFI stand had numerous programmes tailored to specific target groups. Once again, the large info counter gave visitors to the fair a central point to head for when in search of information and new contacts. This year Apimex, a trader from Munich Wholesale Market, and Elbegarten, Don Limón and Port International from Hamburg used the exclusive “partner area” to present their companies.
