Fresh opportunities for profit in fresh berries

Fresh berry sales are growing strongly in major consumer markets around the world. There are new opportunities for growth in Europe in line with changing consumer demands. Shopper choices are driving future sales of fresh berries.

The sixth edition of the Global Berry Congress gives you the latest intelligence and expert insights into fresh opportunities for profit in fresh berries. Global Berry Congress gives you the platform to make new contacts and get the latest information from experts in the field to help you make better business decisions for your company.

Global Berry Congress programme kicks off with an overview of berry trends through to 2020, followed by a review of how the demand for fresh berries in Europe is met as sales in Northern Europe grow strongly and consumer attitudes are changing as more blueberries and raspberries are marketed.

High on the agenda is how more innovation is required to boost fresh berry sales. Category growth in berries depends on innovation in the supply chain. Blueberry sales have grown hugely. So what are the opportunities to grow sales of raspberries, blackberries, and other new berry types?

Session Three focuses on what needs to be done to improve sustainability in the berry category. Fresh berries sell at high prices, and they are highly perishable, so it's vital that supply chain losses are reduced to the lowest possible levels. What is the correlation between lower losses and higher profitability?

Food retailers in Europe now effectively determine the rate of sales growth for fresh berries. Sales grow when they provide more space on their shelves and more promotions in their stores. High-profile speakers will provide their expert insights on the opportunities to grow category sales of fresh berries in Europe by focusing more effectively on marketing.
