 Summary:

Potato has a prominent role to play in meeting the world’s food production needs in the future, both as a commercial and high value crop in developed countries and as food security crop in developing countries. Better understanding of the trends and the drivers of demand is needed to help public and private sectors make informed decisions about investments along the value chain and in the food system. Opportunities for promoting potato consumption with innovative products will also enhance the crop contribution as one of the most important food crops in the world. The session aims at discussing new knowledge, methods and approaches that can improve the understanding in themes such as:

  • Communication and marketing for promoting potato consumption;
  • Global, regional and national trends in potato supply and demand;
  • Potato emerging markets: niches, trends in developing countries;
  • Trend in production of table potato and processed products: innovative products;
  • Trends in organic potato production and markets;
  • Future role of potato as food security crop;
  • Value chain development;
  • Culinary innovations (gastronomy).
