Macfrut Digital is an opportunity for Vietnamese businesses to have met with hundreds of the world’s leading suppliers of fresh, safe, and quality fruits from Italy and Europe.

Macfrut Digital’s online platform Natlive is bringing together businesses in agricultural production, trading, machinery, greenhouses and irrigation systems, nurseries and seeds, fertilizers and bio-stimulants, logistics and storage, and others.

The event has attracted over 600 exhibitors from 30 countries.

Visitors can register for free at macfrutdigital.com. After signing in, they can see an interactive map of products on display, visit virtual booths to learn about products, ask for information from the organizers, and hold exchanges with exhibitors.

There will be conferences live-streamed for free on topics such as renovation in gardening, greenhouses and watering, and forums on bio-stimulation.

According to the organizers, the exhibition will offer a chance for Vietnamese enterprises, distributors and importers to seek tie-ups in the context that the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement with preferential tariffs took effect last month.

Businesses in the field of agro-products and fruits could explore a market of nearly 500 million consumers and learn about their tastes, they said.

According to European experts, Vietnamese agricultural produce such as cashew, coffee, vegetables, dragon fruit, lychee, coconut, fig, pineapple, avocado, guava, mango, and mangosteen are favored in the EU.

Some of Vietnam’s organic products have entered this demanding market after meeting criteria set for organic, Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade certification among others.

The organizers said conventional exhibitions and trade shows have to be postponed or canceled, thus limiting the trade exchange of businesses around the globe.

“In this context, online exhibitions and trade shows are the best way for businesses to meet their partners internationally.”
