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.”

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…”

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.
