We’re pleased to announce that NERGI®, the kiwiberry, will be part of FRUIT LOGISTICA in Berlin, from February 7th to the 9th. Every year, 3077 exhibitors and 76 000 visitors attend this worldwide-known fruits and vegetables event.
In 2013, NERGI® berries had drawn the attention by winning the Fruit Logistica Innovation Award. This reward has confirmed the undeniable interest and success of this unique small green berry in both the main European markets and to consumers.
This kiwiberry that is as big as a grape seed immediately seduced consumers. The fruit perfectly matches the expectations of today’s modern lifestyle. Consumers are extremely fond of practical and healthy products that are perfect for a snack. 100% natural, NERGI® is can be eaten easily and immediately thanks to its edible skin.
On the stalls, NERGI® is sold alongside other berries such as raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. In 2017, more than 4 million punnets were sold (125g punnets) mainly in Germany, France, Italy and United Kingdom. In 2018, the production volume will once again increase.
The berries are handpicked between August 20th and September 10th, depending on the region they’re growing. Thus, the sale period lasts from September to November.
