“Last year the Canadian show in Toronto was really successful,” said Kurt Cappelluti, sales manager for Stellar Distributing Inc., Madera, Calif. “It’s early to tell, but this is a much smaller show. Sometimes you wonder if keeping it in one area would make it attractive to the same amount of volume each year.”
“There’s been good foot traffic,” said Glen Arrowsmith, global marketing manager for organic at Zespri Kiwifruit. “It’s a fantastic way to catch up with the retailers, buyers and distributors who matter across North America. Particularly when we have new product like the SunGold (kiwifruit) and the organic green coming into the market.”
The 2015 CPMA show is set for April 12-14 in Montreal at the Palais des congres de Montreal.
