It is with a heavy heart that the World Potato Congress has learned of the passing of former World Potato Congress Director and International Advisor, Ron Gall.
President Romain Cools stated: “Ron was dedicated to the potato industry and in helping to make the World Potato Congress Inc. the world renowned organization that it is today. After 13 years of involvement with the World Potato Congress Inc., seven as an International Advisor and six as a Director, his commitment and loyalty to WPC will be long remembered.
“Ron’s years of experience in the potato sector were great assets to the Board. He was instrumental in putting on a fantastic congress in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2014 and assisted WPC in maintaining its reputation as a world class networking organization.”
World Potato Congress expresses sincere condolences to Ron’s wife, Gail and the Gall family.
