Asia Fruit Logistica, Hong Kong 2023

Asia Fruit Logistica finally returned after 4 years to Hong Kong, and was a grand and eventful fair. This was the perfect setting for the Grapa team to enjoy meeting with our international partners as well as interesting new prospects.

This year marked a significant shift, with visitors and importers already familiar with ARRA varieties, importing them from various global production areas to different Asian markets. They are now actively seeking new sourcing countries..

Our stand showcased an array of the finest ARRA™ table grapes, drawing immense interest in the new red ARRA varieties, especially ARRA Fire Crunch™. Its color, crunch, and size left visitors mesmerized. The very early white ARRA Honey Pop™ drew much attention with its striking shape and eating experience, retained exceptionally after months in cold storage. An additional very special favorite was the late black ARRA Mystic Dream™, whose outstanding bloom was a real showstopper.
