Oct 27, 2020HZPC to host Potato Days Live virtual event
HZPC’s Potato Days is going virtual in 2020 as Potato Days Live. The networking and information event is set for Nov. 4.
Potato Days brings professionals together from the global potato industry, allowing them to connect and see the latest potato varieties available. The platform will primarily take place in English, but also will be available in French, German and Spanish.
“With Potato Days Live we present a new way to connect,” saidPatrick Overwijk, communication manager at HZPC, a European potato breeding company. “A unique digital potato experience for all our growers, customers, partners and other potato professionals and enthusiasts. We come together in our virtual studio, talk about the latest developments, surprise our partners with inspiring presentations and of course we present our most important varieties.”
At the digital event, speakers like Pedro Sousa (McDonald’s) and Gerard Backx (HZPC) will share experiences about the special time companies are going through because of COVID-19. They look for opportunities to support and strengthen each other. HZPC also allows its growers and partners to talk about how they can make a bigger contribution to the global food supply. Topics that come to the fore are: the relationship with potatoes and microbiomes, cooperation in the potato sector, potato varieties that can grow anywhere.
Participants can choose from two live time slots on Nov. 4. For more information, visit www.hzpc.com/pd20.
