Staay Food Group will again be present at the international fruit and vegetable fair Fruit Attraction in Madrid from 4-6 October. On stand E05 in hall 10, the central theme is our own cultivation. Visitors will get an impression on two TV screens. In addition, we will present the Red Conference pear and introduce visitors to our hydroponic lettuces. On the Holland Fresh Group pavilion, we will be present among many other Dutch colleagues with a stand of over 30 m2.
Visitors can see the Red Conference pear for the first time. This first year-round available red pear has been an exclusive club variety of Staay Food Group and the Belgian Fruit Auction BFV since 2018. Considerable investments have been made in recent years to build up acreage, which has now allowed the first commercial harvests to take place.
Besides Red Conference, we also present our indoor and gutter-grown Salatrio and Butterhead lettuces. These hydroponic lettuces are attracting more and more attention because of their reliable supply and because their root ball contributes significantly to reducing losses and food waste.
Own cultivation of melons and tomatoes
Finally, the - especially for the Spanish market - important Staay products melon and tomato are highlighted. Both also home-grown available, from Costa Rica and the Netherlands respectively besides several other products from our finca in Tarragona (Spain).
Our eight-man stand crew looks forward to welcoming you from Tuesday 4 to Thursday 6 October.
