Rik Vera (Keynote speaker)

“The world has entered the Twilight Zone: the old business models are slowly deflating, they are merging and industry lines are blurring. Out of this chaos a new world is rising with hundreds of new business models. We have the biggest opportunity ever in front of us to re-think how we produce, process, distribute and consume food, water, energy, mobility…”

Tigran Richter (President Europatat)

“This year we are looking at a key edition of our annual Congress: On the eve of the European elections, the Europatat Congress will offer participants the possibility to discuss with European legislators and politicians, and other sectorial colleagues about how the sector should transition to the new decade.”

2021 Virtual edition

On 10 June the European potato community virtually gathered for the Europatat Congress 2021

Under the slogan “Stay connected – new strategies for the potato sector”, Europatat’s annual event focused on the possibilities and challenges that digitalisation can offer to all-size companies in the potato sector.

With more than 100 participants from 20 different European and non-European countries, the Europatat Congress 2021 received an extremely positive feedback, remarking the high quality of the moderator Jean-Paul Judson and the speakers (Gilles Fontaine, Ömer Atiker, Lilian Escalon, Felipe Medina, Anthony Atlas, Liam Glennon and Berta Redondo Benito) and their inspiring messages.

We warmly thank again our sponsors for their support and for making this year’s online Congress possible!
