Sharing Knowledge gives Power  
Automation and data sharing are becoming increasingly important in the fresh produce chain. Not only does the market tend towards closed chains, trading companies are also turning into service providers and an increasing number of relevant information is starting to travel vertically through the supply chains. Knowing the product and its producer has become of vital importance for international retailers. In reverse, producers need to know as much as possible about the consumer and its clients. Every self-respecting fruit and vegetable supply chain focuses on this matter.

Internationally acknowledged standards are of utmost importance for the Netherlands because we are a key player in the European Agri Food Network and a very large part of its horticultural products are exported. This is why Frug I Com, Foundation Platform Fresh Chain Information Management has been at the forefront in establishing these international standards and in encouraging more international cooperation in this area. This in good cooperation with GS1 Nederland, GS1 in Europe, International Federation for Produce Standards (IFPS) and international retail. 

It is great to see that Frug I Com is organising the first EU Fresh Info Forum and Congress in Rotterdam,  which is supported by a number of sponsors. All aspects surrounding computerization and data standards will be addressed here.  An impressive list of highly experienced speakers from 4 continents are prepared to share their knowledge. A visit is an absolute must for everyone involved in the ICT business sector or the fruit & vegetable supply chain. 

Knowledge sharing gives power to every sector. Now, let us use this power!

Chairman of the Board of Frug I Com
