This 2019 episode of the Fruit Logistica, the largest trade show for fruit and vegetables in the world, was the fifteenth one where we had our own presence and our own booth. And for the fifteenth year in a row, it was a great success.
LBP has been a loyal sponsor of the Argofruta Childcare foundation in Brazil. In the last years we have been visiting the farms and the schools regularly. This year we were happily surprised with the first Argo Mango Marmalade made by the children of the foundation themselves. Quite an achievement, especially when you get a chance to taste and eat the marmalade. Not only nicely presented but also very tasty indeed… We want more!
Marcel meets banana lady
Marcel van Leeuwen, our customs team leader, visited and jointly staffed our booth at the Fruit Logistica Berlin. It was his first ever presence so he met with many customers, suppliers and people that he did not know or had not met in person yet (like this well-known banana lady). One of the exceptions to that is Lyudmila.
Just before the opening of the Berlin fair, our longest standing client Nelson Costa, founder of Ibacem, visited Rotterdam to meet with us. Nelson agreed to have an interview with us, which can also be found in this issue of the Fruiticle.
