GB seed and export stand demonstrates success in France!

The 2012 event in France was extremely busy with 1000's of international visitors, many of whom visited us on our stand this September.

This is where AHDB Potatoes has taken a regular trade stand in recent years. Potato Europe rotates each year around four countries: The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and France.

This year we were in 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.

Plus, we are joined by government plant health and seed certification officials who can provide expert, independent advice on seed from GB.

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

All industry visitors were warmly invited to visit AHDB Potatoes stand to discuss high-health, high-quality seed, varieties and exports from GB. We were kept very busy meeting and greeting visitors on our stand on both days.
