Salix happy to get back to Asia Fruit Logistica
Asia Fruit Logistica 2022 returned to its face-to-face format after being affected by restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event was held Nov. 2-4 in Bangkok — not in Hong Kong where the event was traditionally held.
“I saw a lot of enthusiasm from all the participants to have the possibility of meeting once again at a fair, which is important for this business. The number of stands has probably been a bit smaller than in recent years when it was held in Hong Kong, but I think this is largely due to fewer Chinese exhibitors present, given their travel restrictions," said Javier Orti, sales manager for the Asian market of Salix Fruits, a leading company in the import and export of fresh fruits.
Salix Fruits’ team was very satisfied with visitors and the many meetings it held during the event.
“It was very important for us to be present again, as we always were, and to get closer to our customers and suppliers,” said Orti. “Although we have traveled a lot this year, visiting both markets and suppliers, it is difficult to cover everything in one year after two years of Covid restrictions. It was a very active fair for us, with a large number of meetings until the last minute.”
The company had a considerable expansion since the last edition of Asia Fruit Logistica in Hong Kong: it opened procurement offices in Chile, India and Spain, strengthening the supply alternatives for their customers.
