Fruit Logistica 2016: QS draws a positive balance
As leading event of the international fruit trade world, for the first time the Fruit Logistica attracted over 70,000 trade visitors from 130 countries this year. Also the QS exhibition booth at the booth of the Bundesvereinigung der Erzeugerorganisationen Obst und Gemüse e.V. (BVEO) drew numerous visitors from Germany and abroad. Many trade visitors took the opportunity to get the new issue of the Monitoring Report Fruit, Vegetables, Potatoes.
The good visitor frequency at the QS booth and the intensive interest in QS information contributed to the success of the trade fair, Wilfried Kamphausen sums up, he is responsible for the supply chain fruit, vegetable, potatoes at QS.
International relations were expanded and the cooperation with the food retail sector were further consolidated, Kamphausen added.
Another opportunity for exchange offered the by now traditional Blaue Stunde. According to the motto
Working together, celebrating together QS and the BVEO invited co-exhibitors and business partners of the fruit and vegetable sector to a friendly get-together.
Furthermore a meeting of the A-Net took place. The A-Net is a European platform for standard owners in the area of fruit and vegetables.
