Cesena Fiera, the organizer of the inter- national trade fair for the fruit and veg- etable sector just ended in Rimini is already busy preparing the 2017 edition, which will return to its previous schedul- ing as a spring show. The 2017 edition will be held from May 10-12 and will honor strawberries as its theme, with a Strawberry Days event held in partnership with leading Italian straw- berry producers. The partner region and country will be, respectively, Basilicata and China. Basilicata is Italy's leading strawberry-growing region, while China aims to become an increasingly strategic market for Italian and European fruit and vegetable produce. An organic section will also make its debut at Macfrut 2017, acknowledging a re- cent ongoing trend in several European countries. This initiative aims to highlight a constantly growing segment. Italy is a lead- ing organic fruit and vegetable producer and intends to focus on this sector to re-launch its exports in north European markets. Among other new features, the next edition will host the first "Macfrut Gour- met," an area dedicated to artisan busi- nesses in the field of top-quality fruit processing for modern distribution and specialized retail, as well as "Macfrut in the field." The latter is an initiative sched- uled to be held on the day before the start of the trade fair (May 9) and will involve a demonstration, in dedicated test fields, of cutting-edge technology applied in fields, especially for horticulture.

The PLMA study indicates there is likely to be a big payoff for supermarkets who successfully adapt to the new eating habits of the Millennials. Contrary to ex- pectations, these shoppers are more loyal to their favorite stores than their parents. Nine of 10 do their regular grocery shop- ping in only one or two stores. This rep- resents a dramatic departure from recent PLMA studies that saw consumers spread- ing their shopping among a multiplicity of stores. This loyalty has important implications for store brands. As they select products, Millennials are well informed about brands, including store brands, and where foods come from. Nine of 10 say they are aware of the ingredients in the food products they eat and three of four read the nutritional la- bels on products. Their awareness of store brands and national brands is virtually the same at 84 percent, compared to 86 per- cent, respectively. Commenting on these findings, Brian Sharoff, President of PLMA, said, "Store brands remain the retailer's most potent weapon in developing strategies for this age group. It offers flexibility and opportunities to be creative with product assortment and concept without waiting for national brands. But it requires an understanding of what this age group likes and will buy." GN
