Meet us at Fruit Attraction!


Representatives from DRC will be at Fruit Attraction in Madrid, Spain on October 22-24. This will be DRC’s second visit to the event and as Trading Assistance Manager, Jaime Bustamante, notes: “Our 2018 presence generated good interest in DRC and our services as well as a number of member leads”.

With members located in 17 countries1, DRC is gaining increasing recognition as a global solutions provider when it comes to private, commercial business-to-business dispute resolution and trading assistance for produce entering the North American market.

Expanding international outreach through events such as Fruit Attraction, and others, is a strategic initiative intended to expand membership and assist trading partners with a range of matters such as:

  • quality and condition problems
  • contract of sale and issues related to breach of contract by either party
  • transportation
  • slow pay, partial pay and no pay disputes
  • trade terms (INCOTERMS vs North American Terms)

DRC’s Trading Assistance professionals have achieved a high level of dispute resolution expertise over the past 20 years and are also able to assist exporters with understanding and navigating various import requirements. A comprehensive Frequently Asked Questions guideline has been developed specifically for companies located outside of Canada and is available HERE.

A presence at Fruit Attraction will extend exposure to DRC and its customized trading standards, member responsibilities and dispute resolution services to expand international membership.

Jaime Bustamante and Iryna Romanenko will be at Fruit Attraction and if you or your trading partners would like to meet with either of them, please reach out to confirm your interest and schedule a time to meet. (;

Fruit Attraction is organised by IFEMA and FEPEX, and this year will mark its 11th edition and expects to host 1,800 exhibitors and 90,000 visitors from 135 countries.
