Fruit Attraction LIVEConnect will be hosting the Fresh Food Logistics Summit, organised by Alimarket on 14-16 October, which is dedicated to cold chain logistics. This event, divided into three thematic blocks, will show how logistics is adapting to the current crisis situation, the integration of new technologies, and the trends and new services that have arisen to efficiently supply a changing market. Temperature-controlled logistics has become a critical part of industrial and distribution activity, which is gaining more and more relevance, in order to guarantee food quality and safety, as well as the optimal processing and delivery of products.

Fresh Food Logistics Summit will include the participation of operators and producers related to the fresh and frozen food sectors, to showcase some of the latest projects and developments in the supply chain and the current state of logistics in this sector.
