Conference and Networking Event aim to foster exchange of views on the issues affecting the sector

The World Citrus Organisation (WCO) is to hold two events for the international citrus community at this year’s Fruit Attraction.


Both events will take place during Fruit Attraction

The WCO Conference and WCO Networking Event, which take place on 4 and 5 October respectively, aim to unite citrus producing countries and citrus stakeholders to facilitate collective action in the sector, for both fresh and processed categories. They are open to all members of the industry free of charge.

On the 4 October the WCO invites citrus stakeholders, the press and institutional actors to join WCO members in discussing pertinent issues for the sector at the WCO Conference taking place at IFEMA in Room A10.13 from 8:30-10:30 CET.

The WCO Conference agenda includes guest speakers on positioning citrus in the current retail environment and communicating citrus to consumers as well as a presentation of the WCO Strategy for 2022-2024 and the launch of a new Citrus Statistical Book with the latest citrus sector market data.

The WCO is also holding a WCO Networking Event on the 5 October for members and the wider citrus community to discuss the latest sector and market developments in an informal setting.

Hosted at the Limón de España stand in Hall 7 from 18:00-19:00 CET, the event is an opportunity for members of the industry from around the globe to meet in person and discuss the latest market conditions.
