The management of Origine Group gives a positive feedback on their presence in Fruit Logistica in Berlin.
“We are having many contacts with buyers from Asia and North and South America – states the Managing Director Alessandro Zampagna – This confirms that the market shows growing interest in our activity and that our brands Sweeki and Made in Blu are known internationally. We were pleased to be invited by the Berlin Fair to “China Business Leader Breakfast” an exclusive networking event by invitation only for recognized leaders in the China fresh fruits and vegetables business; we were the only Italian producers’ company, a sign of the appreciation of our activity on the Asian market.”
Origine Group President, Ilenio Bastoni, comments on: “Our priority is to open new markets, for a constant commercial presence in different areas gives more stability and value to our fruits. The mission of Origine Group is to foster the sale on the international markets of the fruits of the member companies. We have been focusing on kiwis and pears so far, with our top brands Sweeki, Pera Italia and Made in Blu, but we are thinking also about new commercial projects on plums and grapes.”
“Three years after the onset of Origine Group – Ilenio Baston adds– the nine founding members have been joined by two leading Chilean companies, David del Curto and Copefrut, and an Italian eminent company, Op Minguzzi of Alfonsine. This is the evidence that our project is valid and is drawing the interest of the producers at an international level. I want to underline the role of our two Chilean members, that allow Origine Group to propose to the global market a 12-month supply of top-quality kiwis, six months with the Italian product and six month with the Chilean product. In this way we consolidate our top brand Sweeki and we are more interesting for the overseas retailers, in particular, but not only, in Asia”.
