Show Review: Over 300 Exhibitors at PotatoEurope 2016

The 300 exhibitors present (25% more than in 2008) were able to meet with their customers, at PotatoEurope, in Villers-Saint Christophe, France, September 14-15. The dynamism of the various sectors, from seed production to trade of consumption tubers (France being the leading European exporter) but also the processing industries, attracted a wide international audience. Foreign participants came mainly from Benelux, Germany and the United Kingdom, but also from other countries. Potato Processing International magazine held an insightful seminar during this year’s Potato Europe event, in collaboration with Cedric Porter of World Potato Markets, presenting the impact of Brexit and the potential repercussions UK’s exist from the Union may have on the potato industry imports and exports. At the same time, during the seminar, Potato Processing International magazine showcased details of the International Potato Processing and Storage Convention (IPPSC), which the publication will organize next year, May 31-June 1 in Portland, Oregon.
