Liam Glennon (Chairman WPC LOC)

Happy Birthday to Europatat – 70 years young this year! And where better place than Dublin to mark this special occasion!
There are not too many international organisations that have been around for 70 years and during this period Europatat has seen many significant changes in the industry. It is a great tribute to Europatat that not only is it still with us, but is now stronger and more relevant than ever.

Romain Cools (President WPC inc.)

“Congratulations to Europatat for it’s 70th anniversary. It’s been an honour to contribute to this history, which is looking at a challenging future today. I am sure that the linking of the Europatat Congress to the 11th World Potato Congress in Dublin will mark this start of a bright future of this wonderful sector. See you in Dublin soon!”

Gilles Fontaine (President Europatat)

This year Europatat is celebrating its 70th Anniversary. Seventy years after its creation in Paris, our association is more active than ever. To mark this important milestone, we look forward to welcoming you all in Dublin in May 2022!

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!
