Agripat – a new organisation for Italian potato producers

Agripat is a new organisation gathering 1,023 producers, 266 of which are direct members while 757 are members through 8 partner cooperatives. This in turn means over 10% of the potatoes grown in Italy for the fresh produce market are part of Agripat. “Emilia Romagna is the region producing the leading quantities in Italy and the purpose is to promote our produce as best as we can,” explains President Michele Filippini. Maurizio Cesari is the vice-president. The hectares cultivated by Agripat partners in 2017 were 2,555, 1,718 of which located in the Bologna province. The rest is mainly in the Ferrara and Ravenna provinces. Crops dropped from the 3,263 of 2012, but quantities actually remained constant or even increased as only non-specialised producers and small crops were lost. More
