The first virtual edition of the PMA Fresh Summit has officially come to an end*. For three days, from October 13-15, buyers and sellers across the produce and floral industry got together. The heart of the expo was the marketplace, where all exhibitors could be found. On top of that, also educational sessions were organized and several products were highlighted. And just like other years, there was also a Fresh Ideas Showcase where new ideas were presented.
Last year, the novelties were on display in the hallway of the exhibition center. This year, they also got a spot. Among the many produce novelties, also the floral exhibitors had the possibility to present their novelties. Six floral companies presented their 'fresh ideas'.
