Canada is returning to the world’s largest fresh produce trade show, Fruit Logistica, for a fourth consecutive year under a Canadian pavilion organized by Richie Santodiaz, an economic development expert. The show in Berlin will showcase some of the innovations and fresh produce the country has to offer.
The Canadian delegates, who will be based at Hall 23 during Fruit Logistica Berlin, include: CFP, CKF, Summerland Varieties Corporation, Dispute Resolution Corporation (DRC), Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA), Sun Valley Cranberries and Potatoes Canada. Air Canada Cargo is the official sponsor for the Canadian pavilion; Canada’s pavilion is organized by B-FOR International in partnership with the Canadian Consulate in Germany.
Delegate, Brad Dennis from CKF Inc, which won the bronze award at last year’s Fruit Logistica Innovative Awards for Earthcycle, their line of home compostable and recyclable packaging, says, “We are experiencing strong demand from the international community, in particular European countries, as they introduce policies and incentives to reduce single-use plastic. The Fruit Logistica show helps CKF deliver our message of less plastic and more recyclable and home compostable packaging that extends shelf life and performs in highly automated packaging environments.”
