Video: AHDB Exports at Potato Europe 2019

The AHDB Export team have been out in force representing the British potato industry at Potato Europe 2019 in Belgium this month (September 2019).

Representatives from around the world visited Kain, near Tournai, on 4 and 5 September to network with professionals from across the supply chain.

On the AHDB stand were organic seed growers, Skea Organics, ware potato specialists Taygrow, potato market experts Maincrop Potatoes and representatives from Science & Advice for Scottish Agriculture (SASA).

With a reported 10,000 visitors, the stand saw great footfall and remained a popular attraction over the two days. As predicted, many appeared to be interested in the shape of the post-Brexit market, however its uncertainty didn’t seem to cause too much of an issue as conversations soon got down to business.

Rob Clayton, Strategy Director for AHDB Potatoes, said: “Potato Europe is traditionally a well-attended event and this year was no different.

“It was great to see some familiar and many new faces visit the AHDB stand, which gives us and the whole of the British potato industry confidence moving forward.

“From a personal point of view, I was really interested to see what the likes of Belgium and Holland are doing – in terms of technological and mechanical advances we’re moving into some really interesting times, and its events like this where we get to see it all happen.”
