Fruit Attraction

Fruit Attraction is an international show for the fruit, salad and vegetable sector, held in the heart of Spain. For anyone wishing to trade with the Iberian Peninsular, Fruit Attraction is an exciting opportunity to meet the growers, middle men and retailers at the end of one growing season and looking forward to the next. The event is also an important international meeting place for South American countries in particular convening in Madrid.

Anyone trading in fresh produce, herbs and spices, nuts and catering products will either be exhibiting or visiting. Other areas of trade include seeds, fertilisers, post harvest and IT, processing, refrigeration, packaging and labelling, transport and logistics. In fact anything the grower / producer needs for a successful business.

In 2018 the show attracted 1,621 exhibitors and 81,235 visitors from 122 countries. The pleasant exhibition halls, all located off a wide open air walkway, are situated on one level with excellent opportunities for networking. With assistance from the British Embassy in Madrid, who will be on hand with Spanish speakers, the CHA is organising the British group and pavilion and has secured funding for eligible companies to participate.
