Taste that makes the difference in Berlin: fruit producers from the Republic of Moldova participate in biggest agro-food fair in Europe

Feb 10, 2017

12 companies, members of the “Moldova Fruct” Association, participate during 8-10 February 2017 in the 25th edition of the international fair “Fruit Logistica” in Berlin.

“Fruit Logistica” is the biggest European exhibition dedicated to fresh food products. It is annually organized in Germany’s capital city and convenes over 2,800 participating companies and over 7,.000 visitors every year.

“It is really a pleasant fact that after a certain break, the producers from the Republic of Moldova are present in a big number at an event of such a magnitude. The quality of exhibited products, as well as the modality of their presentation is exemplary and now, at a 5-years distance, the progress is visible. The Republic of Moldova has a big potential to become known and to sell its products”, mentions Oleg Serebrian, Ambassador of the Republic of Moldova in Germany.

The biggest producers, processors, and exporters of fruits from the country have the possibility to exhibit their products, to study the world innovations in the area and to meet potential business partners, representatives of retail and wholesale trade networks.

“The participation in this fair is of major importance for us and for the future of our products on the international market. We hope to obtain useful contracts, as well as experience in promoting and presenting the fruits, to discover the new preferences of consumers. I think that we can make the international consumers loyal to us through quality, adjustment to the new realities and a more active promotion”, notes Iurie Fala, Executive Director of “Moldova Fruct” Association.

The participation of the companies from the Republic of Moldova in “Fruit Logistica” was possible with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), through a project financed by the Norwegian and Romanian Governments, with the financial support of the Organization for Investments’ Attraction and Export Promotion in Moldova (MIEPO) and in partnership with the German Development Cooperation through GIZ and “Moldova Fruct” Association.

Since 2011, UNDP Moldova and “Moldova Fruct” Association have supported Moldovan producers and exporters to participate in this important event.
