Sad news came out of the Pacific Northwest fruit research community that longtime plant geneticist and small fruit breeder Chad Finn passed away recently. Very sad news, extra, while Chad would be present at the International soft fruit conference 2020. In the summer during the Berry Congress in Switzerland we made the preparing to come to our conference 2020. Our thoughts are with his family and friends, may he rest in peace.

On Thursday 9th January 2020 we will organize the 10th ‘International Soft Fruit Conference’ in ‘s Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands.
The ISFC 2020 will include a wide range of presentations that cover many different aspects of the soft fruit industry. Simultaneously to the presentations we will have an exhibition where soft fruit related companies and organizations present their newest developments and services.
A great day of informative, motivating sessions and a large trade show.

In 2019 we had 750 attendees, originating from over 40 different countries, what makes the ISFC ‘the place to be’ for everyone who is involved in the soft fruit industry!
