“Growing Kent & Medway” attended this year’s Fruit Focus, the leading technical event for the fruit industry, hosted by NIAB EMR at East Malling in Kent.

The event brought together more than 1,200 growers and industry professionals with well over 100 leading suppliers. It showcases all aspects of agronomy, machinery and equipment, business information, pre- and post-harvest technology, and marketing.

Fruit Focus gave us a unique opportunity to exchange views and network with key businesses in the horticultural food production supply chain and the enabling AgriTech sector. This feedback has helped to shape and direct the activities that we intend to deliver with the shared goal of improving productivity, inclusive growth and sustainability in the sector.
