Despite the different opening days and a substantial increase in exhibition space, visitor attendance figures at this year’s Fruit Logistica stayed around the 50,000 mark, whereas last year’s edition saw strong growth in numbers. According to fair director Christian Göke the trade event held its own in the turmoil of the credit crunch. “There was no sign of any crisis. For the international fruit and vegetable trade, Fruit Logistica is more important than ever.”
This year saw a record number of stand holders – a total of 2288 representatives from 80 countries. The number of mushroom related exhibitors was also higher, at around 25. Here are some pictures of the mushroom companies respresented at the fair.
