AHDB Potatoes supports GB's seed export industry

AHDB Potatoes presents key seed and export messages to existing and prospective international markets at key overseas trade events.

Our trade stands at key overseas events provide information and advice to industry on the quality and health benefits of seed from Great Britain. The stands maintain and build on the excellent reputation of seed from Great Britain and to provide a live marketing 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 participate with AHDB Potatoes stands overseas and to use the stand as a base for branding, meetings and networking.

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

Where AHDB Potatoes presents a seed and export-focused joint stand with our AHDB horticultural sector HDC 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 generating more interest each year.

The 2015 stand was a major success once again and is becoming the hub for the UK's potato and horticultural export industries.

The GB potato and horticultural industry is warmly invited to participate on AHDB stand at Fruit Logistica and to use the stand as an exports marketing platform and excellent base for meetings at the event.

This a key - and growing - industry event where AHDB Potatoes takes an exports marketing stand.

Potato Europe rotates each year around four countries: The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and France and is a key industry event for our seed and export sector. We typically present a large stand promoting seed, plant health variety information and related scientific expertise. Our seed and export industry co-exhibit on this stand under their own branding to promote their own varieties at this busy trade event.

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. More information on Potato Europe:
