Overseas trade events

5 August 2013

AHDB Potatoes's seed and export team support 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 visit AHDB Potatoes stands overseas to use the stand for meetings and general networking.

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

This is where AHDB Potatoes present a seed and export-focused stand at this major fresh produce event in Berlin. Over 55,000 visitors and 2,000 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.


AHDB Potatoes'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 AHDB Potatoes stand at Fruit Logistica and to use the stand as a base for meetings at the event.


This a key industry event where AHDB Potatoes has taken a stand in recent years.

Potato Europe rotates each year around four countries: The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and France. 
In 2013 we're in The Netherlands and industry stand boookings on the AHDB Potatoes stand are now closed.

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:

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.
