I am very pleased with my visit to the MedFEL exhibition. The fair is small but I believe that’s a positive point. A lot of time is allocated to exchange information (expectations). I think b2b is a sensational way to make new business partners. I'm in contact with some of them. Transport, food, accommodation at a high level. Tomasz Walendzik - Geofruit
With MedFEL, I am able to establish extensive contacts with participating companies. So my visit to MedFEL has been on the whole more fruitful for my company than my visit to the last Berlin show. Michael Laurent - Société de Cultures Légumières / SCL
The VIP programme is very well planned and organised; I was able to establish new business contacts...

medFEL gave me a chance to meet partners from countries that do not usually take part in trade fairs. We are able to make better use of discussion time than at other fairs. Martin BALCELLS Total Produce Nordic - Denmark
The concept of BtoB is by far the best and most efficient to exchange ideas, discuss cooperation. Maciej PORZEZINSKI - Food Distribution Logistics - MGL Metro Group Logistics – Poland
As a fruit and vegetable importer for Algeria, I took part in the business convention and established some good contacts, particularly with apple and peach suppliers. I am most satisfied and I also discovered the Saint Charles platform; a very good trade fair. Kouider Bouterou - COLD STORE - Algeria
Like last year, the meetings were fruitful and the organisation met the organisers’ ambitions. In addition to the prearranged meetings, I had numerous discussions in the aisles and at the “relaxation” stands. It was an opportunity to get up to date with the year’s business and to identify new ways forward. Liliane Peytier - PRONATURA - France
A very well organised trade fair; it was very informative, giving even small producers the opportunity to work with the British market. Craig BUTTRESS - Pauley's (Groupe BRAKES) - United Kingdom
The fair hit the target. I ask for Citrus, Apples and appreciate the role of planning in the success of the meetings (approximately 20). Mohammed Salah Ouzdamir, TAMIMI Company - Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
A big thank-you for the welcome, the organisation and the professionalism; my visit to Medfel was a very interesting and positive experience. I was looking for apples, pears, peaches, nectarines, apricots and grapes to import into Saudi Arabia. The presence of transport and logistics companies gives the trade fair the complementarity that it needs for its business. Kamel Berriche, Carrefour Express Al Salam - Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
