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!”

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.

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!

IPF – Irish Potato Federation

The Irish Potato Federation was set up to promote the interests of the wholesale potato trade in Ireland and to promote potato consumption. Today it consists of nine members, comprising potato wholesalers, packers, importers and exporters of both seed and ware potatoes. Collectively they manage and distribute a significant proportion of Ireland’s potato crops.

The Federation has been an active member of Europatat, the European Potato Trade Association, for over 40 years and is recognised by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and An Bord Bia (The Irish Food Board) as the official negotiating body on behalf of the wholesale potato trade in Ireland.

IPF looks forward to welcoming delegates from around the world to Dublin in May 2022 for WPC2022 and the Europatat Congress 2022.
