Spain: Quality and successful attendance at the International Blueberry Seminar
Yesterday the ninth International Blueberry Seminar was held in Punta Umbría (Huelva), the first edition in Spain and Europe of a series of professional seminars that has already been held in Chile, Peru, Mexico and Argentina. The expectations of this seminar were very high and ambitious, but these were overwhelmed by the great interest of the European agricultural and arandanero sector.
Almost 450 people, an 20% of them of international origin, attended the eight technical and commercial presentations of international experts who gave the keys to perform a previous preparation of the land, a management and nutritional monitoring of the crop and a post-harvest suitable to obtain a fruit of quality and attractiveness for the markets and the consumer. The global commercial situation of this product, which has more and more consumers around the world demanding quality and flavor, attracted by the great health benefits attributed to this fruit, was also discussed.
AGQ Labs and Blueberries Consulting, as organizers of the event, thanked all attendees and more than 20 corporate sponsors for their commitment to strengthening and modernizing this sector, and to Freshuelva and Extenda (Andalusian Agency for Foreign Promotion) their institutional support to achieve that cranberry and Andalusian products are a benchmark in the global agri-food market. Precisely Freshuelva is an example of regional associationism and international collaboration between producers to promote technical knowledge and profitability of these crops.
