Leading fresh produce event considers potential major changes that are likely to shape the business over the next few years

DOGK 2023

Deutscher Obst & Gemüse Kongress, the leading event for the German fresh produce business, returns to Düsseldorf on 19-20 September 2023 with a programme focused on important changes to the way fruit and vegetables are produced, marketed and distributed.

The annual event is expected to attract more than 400 people – including high-level retail representatives – with its combination of opportunities to network with key industry people and to learn about new trends.

On the afternoon of 19 September, delegates can enjoy exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to the new Globus store in nearby Wesel.

This former Real hypermarket has been completely renovated and relaunched under the Globus banner, with a fruit and vegetable department that now plays a central role in the overall store concept.

After that visit, an evening get-together will provide vital networking opportunities and also host the presentation of this year’s Fruchthandel Magazin Retail Awards.

On 20 September, a packed agenda will cover some of the most important developments in Germany’s fresh produce business. Topics include the possibility of a strategic marketing alliance between foodservice operators and retailers, opportunities and risks associated with the metaverse, macroeconomic challenges, consumer trends, and the potential for greater local and regional supply.
