Romanian fruit producer Agricrafters has partnered with global logistics giant DP World to bring fresh blueberries from Romania to supermarkets across the Middle East. This innovative collaboration marks a significant milestone in the global fruit trade, paving the way for Romanian businesses to reach international markets.
DP World’s global infrastructure, including cutting-edge terminals and controlled-atmosphere reefer containers, has been instrumental in ensuring the freshness and nutritional value of the blueberries.

This year, the company aims to expand its shipments tenfold, not just with Romanian blueberries but also with fruits from other European countries like Portugal and Spain. This expansion will provide a year-round supply of fresh fruit to consumers across the region.

DP World’s recent announcements of a €38 million expansion project at Constanta port and a €20 million logistics hub in Aiud further demonstrate the company’s commitment to fostering trade and economic growth in Eastern Europe. These investments will not only benefit Romanian businesses like Agricrafters but also open doors for other companies seeking to access previously untapped trade routes.
