25 years of FRUIT LOGISTICA – a success story, in particular with German produce. German fruit and vegetables have been part of FRUIT LOGISTICA from the beginning. Back then, in 1993, the number of exhibitors as well as the dimensions of this novel trade fair concept was rather manageable and FRUIT LOGISTICA took place parallel to the International Green Week.
Today, FRUIT LOGISTICA is the world's leading trade fair for produce. German fruit and vegetables have asserted their high status against international competition. In 2017, which marks the 25th anniversary of FRUIT LOGISTICA, Germany is to be Partner Country. The reasons are obvious: German produce stands for highest quality and freshness, seasonal and local products, and a wide range of flavors, ingredients and shapes.
Fruit and vegetable cultivation plays a significant role in Germany and thus, it results in safe products of the highest quality. In Germany, there are numerous traditional fruit and vegetable cultivation areas. Click here for an overview of cultivation areas in Germany.
