Potato Europe 2014 - Bockerode

After editions in France, Belgium and the Netherlands Potato Europe has returned to Germany. On September 3rd and 4th Bockerode (close to Hannover) was the central point for the worldwide potato chain. With 220 exhibitors from thirteen countries and 10,000 visitors the event can definitely be called a success. The sunny weather and land made for a sharp contrast with last year's 'mud pool' in Emmeloord.

Potato Europe had the trade area in a huge hall. There was also an extensive mechanization park outside and there were lots of varieties and harvesting demonstrations. Although the mood at the potato market fell far below zero, many international growers made an appearance to inform themselves about the latest developments. Obviously the acquisition of Miedema by Dewulf was an important topic. Karel Decramer from Dewulf said: "This news really shook the whole market. Together with Miedema we are number two in the sector."

Thirty Dutch and Belgium companies exhibited their products. You can see the pictures of the event on the link below.
