Ireland: Bord Bia launches EU funded potato consumption campaign – aimed at millennials

Details of a joint initiative with promotional agencies in France and Belgium with the aim of promoting fresh potatoes among European millennials have been announced by Bord Bia today, Breifne O’Brien of AgriLand reports.

Bord Bia – alongside CNIPT (France), VLAM (Belgium) and Europatat (EU Potato Trade Association) – will launch a new campaign titled: ‘Potatoes, prepare to be surprised – Europe’s favourite since 1536’ this spring.

The EU-funded campaign will run from January 2020 to December 2022 and will encourage the consumption of fresh potatoes among millennials in Ireland, Flanders (Belgium) and France.

Speaking at the National Potato Conference – organised jointly by Bord Bia, the Irish Farmers’ Association (IFA) and Teagasc – Lorcan Bourke, fresh produce and potato manager at Bord Bia, said: “Today’s National Potato Conference positions the potato as ‘The Food of the Future’.

“These themes will feature in the wider EU-campaign, as we know that these are issues important to our target audience of people aged 18-34.”

The National Potato Conference is taking place at the Red Cow Hotel today.
