Connecting with Fresher Lettuce and Sensational Snacks

Fresh Connections 2016

From 17th to 18th May Rijk Zwaan was present as an exhibitor at the PMA A-NZ conference Fresh Connections 2016: a key networking, educational and business event for the Australasian fresh produce industry run by the PMA.

Members of Rijk Zwaan's Australian sales team met with partners in the fresh produce chain to talk about recent innovations in breeding and their downstream implications for producers, vendors and consumers alike, such as; Fresher lettuce thanks to Knox™ and new Sensational Snacks.

Including snack tomatoes and cucumbers the Sensational Snack range drew a lot of interest in particular, according to Retail & Trade Account Manager, Frances Tolson. "Many of the visitors to the stand were impressed and commented on the quality and flavour of these snack varieties, in particular the snack tomato Florantino. We had some great discussions about breeding developments, and I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that visited us".
