Europe needs your fresh products
Fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs - especially organic products - are very popular in Europe. However, due to limited resources and climatic conditions, their demand cannot be met year-round just by European production. Tropical fruits also do not thrive in northern Europe even in summer. This is a perfect chance to enter the European market with your products.
If you are a producer of fruit and vegetables located in one of our partner countries and have a GLOBALG.A.P. certificate, IPD supports you in entering the European market. We offer training on export-related topics and matchmaking with European buyers through specialised trade shows, buying missions and virtual b2b events.
IPD also trains you in corporate social responsibility. This topic has taken on added importance due to a new European law designed to improve the protection of human rights in global supply chains.

Benefit from the high demand in Europe
Europe cannot cover the demand for fresh fruit and vegetables independently. Therefore, European importers are looking for reliable suppliers in the partner countries listed here. If you meet the criteria of the IPD programme, we will support you in your journey to bring your fresh produce to the European market.
Tierra Orgánica was born out of necessity: After a heavy earthquake hit the region, the producers’ association wanted to support small farmers through the cultivation of organic fruit.
