2013 Growers Tour Europe
On the 1st of February 2013, DSA Fresh managing director Michael Vorrasi along with 10 other growers embarked on a tour to Israel, Germany and The Netherlands. This tour exposed us to a range of on and off-farm business practices. It also provided valuable opportunities to network with international industry counterparts and learn about technological innovations, including the latest farming techniques and practices.
We visited vegetable farms, farmers markets and the John Deere Tractor Production Facility in Germany. The tour also included attendance at the Fruit Logistica Conference in Berlin, Germany. The Conference attracts attendees from the entire produce supply chain across Europe, as well as business leaders from every segment of the produce industry worldwide. As a group and individually we gained enormously from this experience and learnt about the latest trends and technologies. This assisted in meeting new customers, developing networks, gathering information and viewing new products and services.
