CONGRESS

The 10th World Potato Congress (WPC) and the XXVIII Latin American Potato Association (ALAP) Congress is the industry’s most important scientific event worldwide. It is an excellent showcase to promote the sustainable use of potato biodiversity (with a focus on native varieties), including how to differentiate it on the market and mine its gastronomic uses with varieties related to health and nutrition. It will serve as a food security platform and the development of business ventures.
