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!

Digitalisation is not only a business buzzword but its ecological benefits and economic potential can offer a huge advantage for companies. In 2020 an exclusive selection of speakers will explore the possibilities and barriers to successfully make the most of digitalisation in the potato sector.
