Seed Exports

Overseas trade events (seed and export)

3 April 2011

Potato Council supports GB's seed export industry.

One way we do this is to present our seed and export messages to our existing and prospective markets at key overseas trade events. Our stands provide information and advice to industry contacts on the high quality and high health benefits of seed from Great Britain. Our aim at these events is to maintain and build on the excellent reputation that seed from Great Britain has, and to provide a live platform from which our industry can network with existing and new contacts worldwide to help increase demand for British seed.

The British potato industry is warmly invited to exhibit and visit Potato Council stands overseas and to use the stand as a base for meetings and industry networking.

Here are some details about the events we currently participate in:

Logo Fruit Logistica
This is where Potato Council - and more recently alongside our horticultural colleagues HDC - presents a seed and export-focused stand at this major fresh produce event in Berlin. Over 60,000 visitors and 2,500 exhibitors attend from the worldwide fresh produce industry. This is a huge event and still growing - and the potato content is creating more interest each year.

The 2014 stand was a major success and is clearly becoming the hub for the UK's potato and horticultural industries.

 

Potato Council's stand presentation will focus on GB seed, varieties, related science and R&D and export - supporting GB's seed and export success story.

GB industry is warmly invited to visit the Potato Council stand at Fruit Logistica and to use the stand as a base for meetings at the event.

 

Potato Europe 2013 logoThis a key - and growing - industry event where Potato Council has taken a stand in recent years.

Potato Europe rotates each year around four countries: The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and France. 
 

Potato Europe is a key industry event for our seed and export sector, and we typically present a large stand promoting generic seed, seed health and variety information. Furthermore, this stand is where our seed and export industry co-exhibit with us under their own branding, in order to promote their own varieties to the visitors at this popular, and growing, event.

More information on Potato Europe can be found at: www.potatoeurope.com

Although this is a European event, visitors come from far and wide, from countries such as Syria, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Turkey, Lebanon, and many, many more. It's reputation is growing and it is now seen as a 'must attend' event for the potato sector.
