GBC 2017 WAS FOCUSSED ON CONSUMERS:
The biggest and best berry gathering for 2017 is officially over. More than 400 delegates from 36 countries attended Global Berry Congress 2017 in Rotterdam, a record attendance for the annual event.
Consumer was in the spotlight at this year’s Global Berry Congress. During a packed programme of conference sessions, workshops and talks, delegates learnt more about opportunities to boost fresh berry consumption, to develop new sources of supply and to capitalise on growing demand in markets around the world.
Berry related products and services were on display in the Shipping Hall where the Global Berry Expo took place. Newly introduced Tech Talk Stage welcomed an array of presenters giving the latest insights into innovations and ideas for the berry business.
The last day of the event featured field trips showcasing some finest examples of Dutch retail spots, berry research centre and innovative growers. This was another excellent opportunity to continue networking away from the conference floor.
