The 14th International Conference
Fruit-Inform announces the start of registration for the largest fruit and vegetable market event in Ukraine – the 14th International Conference “Fruits & Vegetables of Ukraine-2017. Success in unity”, which will traditionally be held in a three-day format together with the only exhibition for the fruit and vegetable business in Ukraine - Fresh Business Expo 2017.
