For the second consecutive year, French government agency Business France is coordinating the French Pavilion at Fruit Logistica in Berlin.
According to Business France, the entirety of Hall 22 will be dedicated to fruit and vegetables from France’s various production regions, as well as to equipment, packaging solutions and logistics.
The French pavilion will retain its collective motto, “Made in France - Made with Love“, and four tours will be organised during the fair to guide international visitors around the pavilion.
Business France will provide assistance to visitors from its information desk, which sits beside the French Innovation Corner, a display of novelties and innovations from this year’s exhibitors.
In 2016, according to statistics from FranceAgriMer, French fruit exports totalled 1.29m tonnes, with vegetable exports standing at 1.06m tonnes and potato exports at 1.71m tonnes.
