FRESH Congress, the leading European fresh produce conference, will be held in Paris from June 12 to June 14, 2013. The conference, which is organized by Eurofruit and Freshfel, two major outlets for fresh produce news in the European Union (EU), will bring together leaders and executives in the fruit and vegetable industries in the EU for marketing and networking opportunities.
FRESH Congress launched ten years ago in Paris. It focuses on consumer health and industry sustainability. This year, as Eurofruit reports, FRESH2013 will “present the business with new ideas and potential new strategies to combat the recent stagnation in fresh fruit and vegetable sales…across the whole of Europe.”
FRESH2013’s keynote speakers will cover topics such as consumer trends in Europe, including decreasing consumption of fresh produce, and the emerging trends and challenges for major fruit and vegetable distributors around the issue of sustainability.
