Potato Expo 2016 has started at the Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada and goes on until January 14. The event is one of the largest conferences and trade shows for the potato industry in North America and brings together more than 1,900 growers, suppliers and industry partners. Farmers, growers, packers and shippers who visit the show at the Mirage Hotel and Casino Convention Center are able to discover and get acquainted to new developments from companies from the global potato industry. One such example is TOMRA Sorting Food, a company that is set to demonstrate one of its innovative potato sorting systems at this year’s Potato ExpoThe Halo is a high performance machine, able to sort both skin-on and peeled potatoes according to size and quality.
