The Freskon exhibitors get in contact with the most significant groups of the international retail as well as with domestic and foreign dealers for fresh fruits and vegetables.

Apart from the plenty business contacts, new co-operations and deals that are carried out during the fair, Freskon is the center of parallel conferences and other events where the most current news on production and trade of fresh fruits and vegetables are showed.

In this context, the ‘hosted buyers’ programme has been significantly expanded, with guests from South-Eastern and Central Europe, the Balkans, the Scandinavian countries, the United Arab Emirates and China.
