Useful Industry Organisations

International trade fairs are very important for growers and exporters, not only to display their produce but also to get to know more about their potential markets and competitors. As some markets can be very difficult to access without some help from within (agents, freight forwarders, wholesalers, etc.), fairs serve as an excellent meeting place to make contacts and business links. This section lists some of the more important trade fairs from around the world.
