Come pickin' pecans with TradeScope later this year ...

TradeScope is planning to take its annual dried fruit and nut trade mission to the US when coronavirus lock down lifts.

Every Nov–Dec for the past few years, TradeScope has taken European dried fruit and nut buyers on a trade mission to the American West, namely New Mexico, Arizona and California. The US is the world's largest producer of pecans and almonds, California alone representing 80% of the world's almond production.

Indeed, California is also a major player in the production of walnuts, pistachios, raisins and prunes. We will visit numerous dried fruit and nut processors and, all going well, we will visit Sacramento for the Almond Conference should it also go ahead.

While the current coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the cancellation of many trade shows not to mention massive travel restrictions, TradeScope hopes that by the end of the year the world will have returned to the kind of normality that allows the food industry to resume trading.
