MANILA, Philippines - New opportunities for the export of Philippine agricultural products are seen to open for local firms following the country’s participation in a German trade fair, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) said.

In a statement, ECCP executive vice president Henry Schumacher said the presence of a Philippine Pavilion at the Fruit Logistica Germany would allow the country to further expand and diversify the markets for locally produced fruits and vegetables.

“We believe that fresh produce coming from the Philippines can be competitive in the European market and Fruit Logistica was the best venue to showcase the country,” he said.

“During the expo, we have seen a demand for good quality fruits and vegetables from the Philippines in the world’s fresh produce market,” he added.

The ECCP with assistance from the Department of Agriculture’s Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Service, was able to send four Philippine companies to the trade fair.

The four companies are Flora Integrated Farms Inc., Refmad-V Enterprise; Agrinurture Inc., and Raspina Tropical Fruits Inc.

All four companies were in the trade fair to present their fresh fruits.

The ECCP was likewise assisted by the Philippine Embassy in Berlin during the expo.
