The 2021 Potato Expo is two weeks away. The virtual event will feature general and breakout sessions on the potato business, consumer preferences, demand, supply chains and climate change. National Potato Council CEO Kam Quarles will lead a panel discussion on how COVID-19 relief was put together for agriculture. “When COVID hit earlier this year, the four co-chairs of the Specialty Crop Farm Bill Alliance worked together to come up with priorities we could go to the USDA with,” said Quarles. “This expo panel is to walk through how we did that.” There will also be a virtual trade show at the expo, featuring more than 70 exhibitors. “Attendees can enter the booths virtually and chat with the company,” said Hollee Alexander, vice president of industry relations, NPC. “There’s also the ability to Zoom in the trade show.” The Potato Expo starts on January 5 and goes through January 7.
