"About90% of Moroccan raspberry and blueberries production is for export and about 70% of strawberry is for export. Our main market is Europe (94%) but this last year we started to develop the Persian Gulf, Russia and the Asian continent," said Amin Bennani.

"The UK is our main market but exports to European countries are also increasing, a flow that used to go through Spain and now reaches the main markets directly, including Italy.

The event at Italian Berry Day will offer producers, traders and buyers in the berries supply chain a unique opportunity to learn about the main trends, meet the key players and look together at the future of a rapidly growing category in Italy.
