100 new exhibitors at Macfrut 2016

Cesena – Macfrut does not have just one ace up its sleeve but as many as 100. As of today, this is the number of new exhibitors that will attend the fruit and vegetable trade fair to be held at Rimini Fiera from 14 to 16 September. Leading companies will be representing the entire supply chain in addition to the excellent companies that were already present in the last edition, as always organised by Cesena Fiera. Two and a half months before the event, 95% of spaces have already been sold out of an area of 40,000 square metres available for Macfrut 2016.
 
Speaking of new entries, it is evident that great interest is bringing together all the sectors in the fruit and vegetable supply chain. With regard to producers, among others, new entries will be Orogel (with a 320-square metre stand, one of the largest at the trade fair), Assomela, Bonomo, Finagricola, Club Candonga, Agribologna, Spreafico, Dorì Group, Top Melon, Condifresco, Agricola Gloria 2, Gruppo T18, Antonio Ruggiero and Assortofrutta.
Important new entries can also be found in one of the fastest growing sectors, Fresh-cut products: Zerbinati, Il Melograno, Ambruosi e Viscardi, and Euroverde.
For packaging, the usually large number of participants will also include Ifco, Euro Pool System, JcoPlastic, Plastic Company, Schoeller-Allibert, CiessePapier and Cicrespi.
As for technologies, which have always been Macfrut's strength, the great presence of major European producers will be enriched by the arrival of Siropac, Sgorbati and Retarder.
The pre-harvest segment is also growing, in fact it will occupy 2 out of 7 pavilions at Rimini Fiera. Other new participants will be Esasem, Green Has Italy, Sipcam, Top Seeds and Vilmorin. For the irrigation segment, instead, Rivulis, Irritec and Irrigazione Veneta.
In terms of institutional presence, Coldiretti Nazionale will be attending and Unaproa will set up a maxi pavilion.
Finally, there will be new participants from abroad including the largest group, Rewe (Germany), which, on Thursday 15 September afternoon will host a convention at the exhibition centre for its suppliers in the Mediterranean, featuring Greefa (the Netherlands), Namdhari’s fresh (India), Agro Selections Fruits (France), and PSB (Spain). Many new companies are also expected from Albania, Argentina, Colombia, Kenya, Peru and France, in addition to the numerous foreign exhibitors that already attended last year.
 
“We are moving at full speed towards the 33rd edition of Macfrut, which will be a record one," explains Renzo Piraccini, President of Macfrut. "We are highly pleased with the wide response of the companies that have chosen to join our trade fair, coming from all segments of the supply chain: production, fresh-cut, technologies, packaging, services and pre-harvest. We are expecting an outstanding presence of foreign exhibitors, which is set to rise to 22% of the total."
