Market trends, varietal innovation, sustainable apple production, and high-tech fruit production are just a few highlight topics of this years Congress

Interpoma is far more than a showcase for the apple: it is about sharing opinions, industry buzz, research and innovation insights, and in particular networks and networking in the apple sector.
