Colombia to promote Cape gooseberries and other exotic plants at Fruit Attraction

As the world’s leading producers and exporters of Cape gooseberries, the Colombian exotic fruit trade looks forward to showcasing its products at the Fruit Attraction 2022 exhibition next month.

According to Sandra Riano, Novacampo packers and exporters in Colombia: “For us it is very important to show continuity in the participation in this international fruit fair and to be part of the Colombian exotic offer. Being present at the show gives us the opportunity to establish new contacts and business with importers and distributors. This gives us the chance to meet our real customers and personally meet everyone involved in the exotic fruit business. »

She says that although the Russian war in Ukraine has influenced input prices, it has not been positive for anyone in the world. Fruit Attraction will provide a space for the global fresh fruit trade to connect in person and discuss the way forward.

“Spanish importers and distributors work very actively with exotic fruits because their population is linked to Colombia and South America and exotic fruits are well known in Spain. Our special exotics produced primarily in Colombia such as Baby Mango, Granadilla, Guanabana (Soursoup), Curuba, Guava, Goldenberries, Tamarilo and Passion Fruit are naturally packed with vitamins and health benefits,” says Riano.

According to Flavia Santoro Trujillo, president of ProColombia, the Fruit Attraction exhibition in Madrid is one of the most important for them in Europe. “This year we will be at Fruit Attraction and it is one of the most important fairs for the sector in Europe. We will be attending the show with 10 fresh fruit exporting companies, including the country’s leading Cape gooseberry exporters. Colombia is the main producer and exporter of this fruit in the world. As part of the strategy for the international promotion of this fruit, the country has taken important steps to accompany the sector in the relevant international fairs,” said Trujillo.

Riano says that Novacampo strives to meet the challenges of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in order to achieve a more sustainable world. “Agenda 2030 goal seven, working towards affordable and clean energy, motivated us to install a solar power system in March 2022. The system provides us with 100% green energy, with a 48% surplus that we supply to the city of Tunja in Colombia.

“Our exotic fruits have our Colombian identity, we invite you to eat and enjoy their aroma, their flavors and explore the different possibilities of using them in your gastronomy. All the fruit is available in supermarkets and small fruit shops in many parts of Europe, ready to eat,” concludes Riano.
