Europatat Congress – A new age for potatoes
Andrew has been invited to present the Keynote address at the 2020 Europatat Congress in Brussels. on the topic “A new age for potatoes”.
Europatat is the European Potato Trade Association, based in Brussels, Belgium. Its members are both national associations and individual companies involved in the trade of seed, ware and early potatoes throughout Europe. It therefore includes a wide range of traders (including breeders, distributors, storers, packers, importers and exporters) delivering seed potatoes to farmers, as well as raw material to the food industry, packed potatoes to the retailers and food service sector.
Under the title “A new age for potatoes”, the Congress will explore the possibilities and barriers to successfully make the most of digitalisation in the potato sector. Key speakers from both the business and EU institutions will share with the audience their insights on the ecological benefits and economic potential that digitalisation can offer to companies. All current information is available on the website www.europatatcongress.eu
In order to create a meeting for all potato professionals on the edge of a new potato season, Europatat organises its Congress every year in a different European location. This rotation enables all potato traders to host the congress in their country, which allows them to present the activities of Europatat to their national potato chain and authorities. On the other hand all countries have the opportunity to present their national sector and to focus on their items of interest during the Congress’ workshop.
