CollaborationsWhat we do
Freshfel’s cooperation with other organisations
Freshfel Europe closely cooperates with organisations located in the same premises as Freshfel. This includes WAPA (World Apple and Pear Association), SHAFFE (Southern Hemisphere Association of Fresh Fruit Exporters), ESSA (European Sprouted Seeds Association), Growing Media Europe (producers of growing media and soil improvers) and Europatat (European Potato Trade Association).
Since December 2011, Freshfel has joined forces with SACAR (Secretariat des Associations Agricoles Réunies) incorporating FRUCOM (Dried Food Importers), Union Fleurs (International Flowers Trade) and Assuc (Trade in Sugar). This provides a broader perspective of EU agriculture sectors to the secretariat to policy issues. This collaboration allows for synergies synergies on administrative and policy issues, such as representation in Civil Dialogue Groups and membership to CELCAA (European Liaison Committee for the Agricultural and Agri-Food Trade).
Freshfel also closely cooperates with other agri-food organisations at European level, including COPA-COGECA, AREFLH, PROFEL, AIJN, FoodDrink Europe, EUROCOMMERCE, EPHA, and ECPA, and is accredited with the FAO, WHO, UN/ECE and OECD.
