FRUIT LOGISTICA is the world’s largest trade show for the international fresh fruit and vegetable business, covering every sector of the fresh produce business and providing a complete picture of the latest innovations, products and services at every link in the international supply chain. It thus offers superb networking and contact opportunities to the key decision-makers in every sector of the industry.

The FRUIT LOGISTICA SPECIAL EDITION 2021 gives the global fresh produce business the first opportunity in almost 18 months to meet face-to-face in a safe, COVID-secure environment. The show will bring together every part of the fresh produce value chain in a brand new way. The new compact format is divided into seven segments or product areas: Fresh Produce, Packaging, Logistics, Seeds & Fertilizers, Machinery & Technology, Greenhouse Technology, and Cultivation Equipment. Every exhibitor is placed in the segment or product area relevant to their business. This makes it easier to get around the trade show by reducing the distance between meetings for visitors, and allowing everyone to benefit from a dedicated event program for their particular area.
