After Fruit Logistica trade fair, Bioconservacion organised an international meeting in Barcelona with all its postharvest partners, the Postharvest Partner Meeting 2018.

Thanks to Bioconservacion's major expansion, the event had more than 50 participants, between distributors and end-customers, from 18 European countries and Asia, Africa, America and Oceania.

Over the three days of the meeting many varied topics, all related to postharvest, were discussed. There were also debates and workshops in which different experiences and opinions were shared for the benefit of all the participants.

The agenda was made up of nine speakers, all with important international reputations. Among them was Professor Ronald Wills from the University of Newcastle in Australia, one of the world's top authorities on the study of the elimination of ethylene for the preservation of fresh produce in postharvest. We also benefited from the participation of experts in the transportation, logistics and insurance of fresh produce (fruit, vegetables, flowers, etc.), who provided very interesting information and data for all the attendees, leading to some fascinating discussions.

The intensive agenda in the mornings was combined with various leisure activities in the afternoons, giving the participants the opportunity to strengthen their personal relationships, while enjoying the climate and gastronomy of city of Barcelona.
