More than 250 people from 17 countries attended the Eurofruit Congress Southern Hemisphere 2014, which took place at the JW Marrriott hotel in the Peruvian capital Lima on 6-7 November.

On the first day of the two-day conference, delegates heard from a number of expert speakers and panellists on a range of topics central to Peru's fresh produce export business, including the development of new citrus varieties, growth in the emerging markets of Asia, marketing challenges in North America and Europe, advances in container refrigeration technology, investment growth in Peru's fruit and vegetable business and an ambitious project to irrigate 110,000ha of land in northern Peru for the purpose of agricultural expansion.

Then, during two special two-hour workshops on the second day of the event, delegates were given valuable insight into the worlds of direct sourcing and the blueberry market by Leo Cruz of Tesco and Federico Beltrán of Terra Business respectively.
