World Citrus Organization presented at the European Market Observatory for Citrus


On 13 November in Brussels, the European Commission launches the new Market observatory for citrus fruit. On this occasion, the European Commission requested Jose Antonio Garcia Fernandez, Director of Ailimpo and one of the initiators of the World Citrus Organization (WCO) to present the structure, the role and the objectives of this newly created platform for the global citrus category.

The European Commission welcomed this global initiative taken under the lead of Ailimpo, underlying the relevance of such a platform for the citrus sector to exchange information and debate on matters of common concern to enhance the citrus category.

Such a platform is fully aligned with the objective of the European Market Observatory which aim at providing market transparency and trends. Therefore, the work of the World Citrus Organization will be beneficial for the deliberation of the European Citrus Market Observatory. Following their on-going collaboration with other similar international fruit platform, the European Commission looks forward to having a fruitful cooperation with the new citrus structure once fully in operation.

Freshfel Europe with its experts and the support of its Brussels based secretariat is eager to contribute to the success of the Market observatories and the various sub section such as citrus, peaches and nectarines, apples and pears and tomatoes.
