This year, more than 75.000 visitors from over 130 countries attended the Fruit Logistica. HZPC was present for the 13th time. Once again we got the opportunity to personally meet with our business relations from around the world at one location, which is a valuable aspect of our participation in this trade fair.

At our stand, we showed how convenient and healthy the potato is. We displayed various potato dishes and their its cooking time, we showed how you can prepare a tasty and nutritious potato meal in a simple way. Also, we explained how the potato is a good source of vitamins and fibers, and our cook let the visitors taste several potato dishes.

We look back on a successful Fruit Logistica and are very pleased with the positive feedback we received.
