World Potato Congress Inc. is the organization that created and promotes the tri-annual international World Potato Congress. We are a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to support of the global growth and development of the potato industry.
The tri-annual World Potato Congress, is the world’s premier international gathering of potato related interests. The work we do to insure the success of each Congress, allows us to realize funds that support the ongoing operations of World Potato Congress Inc. between Congresses.
World Potato Congress Inc. has reached a place where organizational growth is necessary to fulfill our mandate and offer increasing support to the global potato industry. Proceeds from our Congress vary, and growing operational costs and a high demand for service, have created an environment where the ability to meet needs is stretched.
The Board of Directors have embarked on a Sustaining Partners Initiative designed to stabilize our operations, and provide the seed money necessary to offer our members and partners even more programming and networking opportunities.
It is crucial, for all involved in the global potato industry, that World Potato Congress Inc. continue to promote its objectives.
Sustaining Partner’s support will help to develop and promote the benefits of the potato both locally and globally. The positive benefits that accrue to the potato industry, from the efforts of World Potato Congress Inc., are immeasurable and have an impact on the individuals who farm the potato, the processors, and others who develop and market the product.
As President of the Board of Directors of World Potato Congress Inc., I cannot over-emphasize how much we would appreciate the opportunity to discuss our Sustaining Partners Initiative with you. If you are interested in learning more about our program, simply follow the links on this page.
