The 2024 Potato Expo was a record-breaker with attendance topping 2,200 people. “The last time we were in Austin, Texas was five years ago and in that time we added 40 percent more exhibitors and 25 percent more attendees,” said National Potato Council CEO Kam Quarles. Regarding policy, Quarles said the potato industry wants a new farm bill passed. “We want Congress and the Administration to get back to normal business and leave this chaos behind. Producers in 2024 need certainty and need to know what’s happening on trade, environmental policy, nutrition, conservation and tax policy.”
