For the 1st European summit on mango and avocado to be held at Macfrut 2018, about 80% of registrations arrive from abroad and especially from South America. All major European importers will be present.

 
 
According to the organizers, 80% of those registered (who are more than 150 on March 20th) come from abroad. Very strong presence of South America, which has always been a great producer of exotic fruits, accounting for 62% of the supply of avocado for Europe (source: World Avocado Organization). Other registrations come from the Dominican Republic, Colombia, partner country Macfrut 2018, Peru, Brazil and the United States. Several inscriptions have come from African countries: Cameroon, Kenya, Sudan, Ethiopia and Zambia.
 
 
 
Interest is also strong in Europe where some countries posted double-digit growth (Sweden, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain, among others) in terms of consumption. In particular, strong presence of Spain - the leading European producer of mangoes and avocados - but also of the Netherlands, Great Britain, France and Belgium.
