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.”

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.”
