Gilles Fontaine (President of Europatat)

The Europatat Congress has become a key date for the potato sector in Europe. This year’s event will be organised in a virtual format with the key word of the day being DIGITALISATION as more and more companies from farm to fork are switching to digital, including those in the potato sector!

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!
