A LONG JOURNEY THROUGH THE INDUSTRY BEGAN IN GUADALAJARA ...
A year ago we said that a very good conversation began in Guadalajara, which would probably last for a long time ... and this was demonstrated on June 8 on the occasion of the 6th International Seminar "Cranberry industry in Mexico: New challenges, new opportunities”, Which was held at the Hyatt Regency Andares Hotel in Guadalajara.
To the more than 320 producers, exporters, technicians or advisers - Mexican and foreign - who actively participated in each of the moments of the meeting, we must add the great support of more than 50 Mexican and international companies, of the most diverse services, who sponsored, sponsored and supported the initiative, even surpassing the success of the previous year's meeting, not only because of the massive attendance and participation, but also because of the high level of the topics covered, the relevance of the contents, and the quality of the researchers and experts who reported on the occasion.
Guadalajara has concluded, and the journey through the industry has begun, continuing in Peru and continuing on June 28 in Tucumán, Argentina. What is coming is to continue strengthening the ties of the Latin American blueberry industry to end this long journey on November 09 in Huelva, Spain.
