Dear Potato Friends,

Welcome to the World Potato Congress website. This website is a tool to support our goal to become a unique networking organization for the global potato chain.

Together with other social media tools, our organization wants to offer you a platform to become and remain a member of the global potato family. You can already use the hashtags #potatocongress and #WPC2018 on Twitter. For information about our 10th Congress to be held in Cusco, Peru from May 27-31, 2018 follow this event at the ‘World Potato Congress 2018’ Facebook page.

The 10th World Potato Congress will offer all potato professionals the opportunity to meet in person and to focus on the theme of the Congress: “Biodiversity, food security and business”. A selection of excellent speakers and innovations in the potato industry will be presented.

As well, our Sustainable Partners will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences with farmers, exporters, processers, scientists and equipment and services suppliers from all over the world.

The World Potato Congress website will be your link to this event with updates and additional information on the Congress and speakers. But beyond this event, we want to provide you with new developments in the potato industry as well as the next planned Congress for 2021.

I kindly invite you to share your comments and suggestions. The WPC Inc.’s new General Manager, Brian Douglas, along with our Board of Directors and Advisory Committee are available to provide additional information and assistance.

Welcome to the global potato family!

Romain Cools,
President
World Potato Congress (WPC) Inc.
