PMA Fresh Connections 2014 was held recently in Auckland, attracting growers and producers, wholesalers, retailers, marketers and industry suppliers.
The sold-out trade show featured more than 2,200 square metres of exhibits at the Viaduct Event Centre. Several tonnes of premium-quality fresh fruit and vegetables were on display and later donated to Auckland City Mission. Conference highlights included joint welcoming comments from the Australian Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce and New Zealand Minister for Primary Industries Nathan Guy.
More than 1,100 delegates travelled to Auckland from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Norway, China, the US and Vietnam.
PMA Fresh Connections will return to Melbourne, Australia in 2015, from May 12 to 14, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
