The association attended Fruit Attraction 2023, in Madrid, Spain. Flores stresses that produce fair participation is key for Mexican berries to establish a global presence.

“Europe is an open market in terms of phytosanitary and safety requirements, which we are always promoting. I think it has been a good idea to hold tastings at fairs to show flavors and new genetics,” he adds.

That is why it is good to know how we stand in those markets to analyze the type of promotional campaign to be carried out, highlighting what Mexican berries are and their contribution to the field and the community related to production in Mexico,” Flores says.
