Why Morocco?

Morocco is fast approaching the leadership positions in the global blueberry industry, not only because of its increasingly important presence in European markets, but also because of the quality of its fruit, which is internationally recognized by demanding consumers.

But the main factor that defines Morocco as an essential place to visit for the global blueberry industry is its rapid growth, which has been sustained in recent years, currently covering a planted area that already reaches 4.000 hectares and which increases permanently in a range that oscillates between 200 and 400 hectares each year, with new and modern productive projects.

These latest figures indicate a significant speed of annual growth, since, according to the records we have of the Moroccan blueberry industry in recent years, until 2015 the growth of the area planted with blueberries was only 50 hectares. year.

Why Agadir?

In Agadir there are approximately 3.000 hectares planted with blueberries and raspberries. All blueberry crops are implemented in management systems Aboveground (in pots) and there are many more technicians than in other areas of Morocco, so the demand for information and knowledge regarding the agronomic, technological and commercial aspects of the crop is much greater.

In short, there are many reasons to meet in Agadir on September 13 and 14, 2023 and participate in XXVIII International Seminar on Blueberries Morocco, the most important blueberry event in the country, where the main players of the Moroccan industry will meet, and there will be activities of networking to interact between attendees and sponsors.
