A major challenge for fresh produce companies right now is to grow fruit in hotter climates. T&G Global, part of BayWa, is one Fruit Logistica exhibitor that is working to meet that challenge.

It recently set up the Hot Climate Programme, a project which aims to develop climate-resistant varieties, working with scientists in New Zealand and Spain. Following a successful trial in Catalonia, it can now grow apples in extreme Mediterranean heat.

In the latest episode of World of Fresh Ideas, BayWa’s business development officer and managing director Katelyn Jones speaks to Fruitnet’s Mike Knowles about this exciting new venture.
