Tomasz Bieńkowski (President PPF)

“We are very excited to bring the Europatat Congress 2023 to Poland for the first time ever. Currently, we are the second largest producer of potatoes in the EU and the potato industry has a significant share in Polish food production, which annual turnover reaches several billion zlotys.”

Tigran Richter (President Europatat)

“This year we are looking at a very interesting edition of our Congress in Poland, a very important market for potatoes. The Congress will provide a lot of substantive discussions for colleagues around Europe and beyond on the future of the potato trade given the current geopolitical and economic constraints.”

2023 Gdansk

On 5 and 6 June the European potato community gathered for the Europatat Congress 2023 in Gdansk, Poland. Under the slogan “The Changing Geopolitical Landscape and the Future for Potato Trade”, the first-time ever Polish edition of Europatat’s annual event focused on the impact of current geopolitics for international agri-food trade and on the effect of EU’s Green Deal’s goals and new consumption trends for the potato sector inside and outside Europe.
