European Potato Processors’Association organises its first congress to celebrate its 50th anniversary

10:37 2013

EUPPA, the European Potato Processors’ Association, is organising in Brussels (Golden Tulip Hotel) its 1st Congress for the processed potatoes’ sector on 16th May 2013 in Brussels, which will be also an opportunity to celebrate the 50th anniversary of EUPPA. The day before EUPPA working Committees and General Assembly will meet. 

The event will present the history of the sector and its achievements. It will be an opportunity to speak also about the future and upcoming challenges.

Additionally the Congress will be an excellent opportunity for representatives of EU manufacturers, regulatory and commercial teams as well as other professionals of the processed potatoes chain to make new contacts and renew existing ones. The coffee breaks and walking lunch will provide time for informal discussions and networking.
