About the Europatat Congress

In order to create a meeting for all potato professionals on the edge of a new potato season, Europatat organises its Congress every other year in Brussels, the capital of Europe, and every other 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.

In 2021, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its related international travel restrictions, the Europatat Congress was organised for the first time ever in a digital format. In 2022, the Europatat Congress will be organised in Dublin on 29 and 30 May in the context of the World Potato Congress. Registrations are already open!
