GLOBAL CITRUS CONGRESS LIVE


Global Citrus Congress Live is a must for those who want to learn more about the international citrus business.

Citrus is one of the biggest produce categories, but it has faced increased competition from other fruit and vegetables in recent years. Since the onset of Covid-19, however, demand has been booming. How can suppliers maximise this opportunity and build a more sustainable industry?

Fruitnet Media International and the World Citrus Organisation have joined forces to organise the first ever Global Citrus Congress Live, a virtual event bringing together leading players from the global citrus industry to identify and develop strategies to meet growing global demand.

Global Citrus Congress Live presents the latest global production figures and track emerging consumer trends, identifying opportunities to sell more citrus in traditional and emerging markets.

 

The programme highlights key areas in which improvement can be made, including how suppliers and retailers can work more closely together to add value to the citrus category; how new technologies, varietal development and supply chain innovation are helping citrus marketers to improve their offer; and how to harness the nutritional power of citrus to develop more effective marketing campaigns.
