The Potatoes South Africa Congress which will be held on 28 September 2017 at the Premier Hotel OR Tambo, Gauteng.

During this Congress, the focus will be on value chains with the purpose to debate the theme: “Do value chains really matter ...and if so, where is the value?”

It is imperative that stakeholders in the food value chain produce that what will satisfy consumers’ tastes and preferences at affordable prices. Their tastes and preferences are constantly changing due to a number of factors that include, but are not limited to changes in per capita income, societal influences and lifestyle changes. The stakeholders in the food value chain must listen to consumers to understand and pre-empt how their tastes and preferences will change over time, and to re-engineer itself in order to remain relevant. This applies likewise to the potato industry. During this Congress experts in different potato value chains will discuss what is required of the potato industry to remain relevant and grow the demand for potatoes and potato products.
