Europatat is the European Potato Trade Association. It gathers national associations and companies involved in the trade of seed potatoes and ware potatoes from all over Europe. Initially set up in 1952 by national associations to protect the interests of the wholesale potato merchants, its membership now counts over 30 associations and companies.
In order to create a meeting for all potato professionals on the edge of a new potato season, Europatat organizes its Congress every year in a different European location. This rotation enables all potato traders to host the congress in their country, which allows them to present the activities of Europatat to their national potato chain and authorities. Also, all countries have the opportunity to present their national sector and to focus on their items of interest during the Congress’ workshop.
This year’s congress is taking place in Brussels on May 3-4, 2018.
