A new market, promoting Greek kiwi which is produced in EM-T and specifically in Kavala, was opened with its presence in Montreal, Canada, by the network Premium European Kiwi which is formed by two Agricultural Cooperatives (AS Nestos and NESPAR) and two individuals ( Alkyon AE and Gustera AE).
The network participated in the international exhibition SIAL Canada 2016, which was held recently, leaving a very positive impression and raising expectations for a rise of Greek Kiwi Exports, since our country is the third producer in the world.
Speaking in ERA Komotini the Director of the AgriculturalAssociation „Nestos“ Tasos Kartzatzalos, stood in the other actions of the EU program that the accosiation is involved as the presence at fairs this fall and in other emerging markets such as China, the United Arab Emirates , and North America.
«We have realised that only by being united we can provide a sufficient amount of product and excellent quality to keep markets and access new ones. That is the reason why we set up the network and we found this EU program for promoting our products in, this program is a three-year and may not accept other producers. However, in subsequent projects the network expansion should be held „noted by Mr. Kartzatzalos.
Finally he also mentioned that in the Rhodopes there has been a fresh start with apricot production and seed of 150 acres.
