The Fruit and Vegetable Production Technology Expo will take place on the 18th and 19th of November 2016. It will be a well-rounded exposition with many educational features. As the organizers, we aim to create an international market of business contacts for farmers from all around the world, as well as merging the Polish fruit and vegetable market. The event will take place in Targi Kielce - the second biggest trade fair centre in Mideastern Europe - a place with 22 years of experience in organizing the international Argotech trade fair. Later this year, we will host manufacturers of farming equipment, machines and technology used to produce fruits, vegetables, grapevines and wine.
The trade fair will be held under the patronage of the Polish Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development.
With an 5-11% share in European production, Poland counts as one of the biggest suppliers of fruit grown in temperate climate. We are Europe's biggest supplier of apples, which makes us fourth in the world (after China, USA and Turkey). Poland is the only country in the EU where the apple farming trade is flourishing, growing in both plantations and potential.
Out of all the countries of the EC, Poland is the biggest supplier of cherries, raspberries, currants and blueberries. We are also significant when it comes to producing strawberries, gooseberries and chokeberries. Poland is the fourth largest supplier of vegetable produce in the EU, surpassed only by Italy, Spain and France. Vegetable farming in Poland takes place in both open and covered fields. There are many types of vegetables successfully grown in Poland, but the most significant are cabbages, onions, tomatoes, carrots, beetroots and cucumbers.
Leaf Media is an important partner for the HORTI-TECH trade fair. They have been active in Poland for more than a decade, specializing in handling the logistics and media branches of gardening and agricultural production. They are the only expert of this sort in the country, and as such they are running educational programs and training. They are also connected to many of the leading publishers in the field of agriculture.
Targi Kielce and Leaf Media would like to invite you to an event which will gather Polish and international companies, offering the resources and knowledge necessary for running big market farms. This main goal of the trade fair is accompanied by many educational features, such as workshops and professional training. The best machines and technological solutions presented during the fair will be awarded the HORTI-TECH Innovation Medal.
