During the event, the speakers professionally assessed the current situation and prospects for the development of the berry market in each country. In addition, the influence of the panovirus coronavirus 19 pandemic on the state of the world economy, agribusiness and, in particular, the berry sector was analyzed. All speakers noted problems with logistics – in the context of the ban on air travel, it became much more difficult to transport berries, and in some cases impossible. The manufacturers and experts who participated in the conference drew attention to the issue of providing labor for the harvest time: in connection with quarantine, many workers returned to their countries, so there should not be a shortage of workers, but at the same time transportation of workers and all work processes should comply with quarantine restrictions.

We offer you to watch a video conference, listen to speakers and their answers to questions from event participants.
