Europatat - UNION EUROPEENNE DU COMMERCE DE LA POMME DE TERRE
WP 7, 8
EUROPATAT is the European Potato Trade Association, an international non-profit association that represents national associations and individual companies involved in the trade of seed, ware and early potatoes throughout Europe. Its members include a wide range of traders (including breeders, distributors, storers, packers, importers and exporters) delivering seed potatoes to farmers, raw material to the food industry, and packed potatoes to the retailers and food service sector. Among its activities, Europatat monitors ongoing and potential upcoming policy dossiers within the areas of interest for its members (agriculture, plant health and food safety, promotion and consumption, trade, sustainability, food waste and R&I), and collects data and expertise on these topics. Europatat also facilitates the exchange of information and opinions within its members in order to adopt common positions to defend the sector.
Europatat is mainly involved in WP7. In this context, Europatat will focus on the dissemination of the project objectives and results via its well-established internal and external communication channels.
