The National Potato Conference and Trade Show 2022 in Ireland will take place in the City North Hotel, Gormanston, Co Meath, (K32 W562) on Tues, Nov 22nd. As TipperaryLive reports, the conference will be organised by the Irish Farmers Association (IFA), in association with Teagasc and Bord Bia.
The conference theme is ‘Potatoes – Protecting your Business for the Future’. The conference will be opened by Tipperary farmer and IFA President, Tim Cullinan.
IFA Potato Chairman Sean Ryan said, “The challenges for growers producing potatoes have increased substantially in the past two years with increased costs and a relatively static output price. All growers are struggling to deal with the increase in all inputs, but especially fertiliser and electricity”.
Economist Jim Power will address the topic of food and input price inflation. Kantar will give an update on consumer trends and Bord Bia will explore marketing opportunities for potatoes. Tickets to the conference are available on a first come first served basis and can be purchased here.
