This so-called 'Industry Oscar' is awarded by Messe Berlin and Fruchthandel Magazin (Düsseldorf) for outstanding innovations in the fruit and vegetable sector and its service industries. This award honours new products or services that have given the industry a tangible boost.
A jury of experts nominates the ten most important innovations of the year for the Fruit Logistica Innovation Award 2019. These ten innovations will be presented in a separate exhibition area at the event. The more than 78,000 expected trade visitors will have the opportunity to vote for the innovation of the year during the first two days of the fair, with the winner officially honoured at an award ceremony on 8 February 2019.
