In February 2018, IPM and its Greek distributor Geomat exhibited at the impressive Agrotika event in Thessaloniki. The event was very well attended with growers from all parts of Greece and good meetings and discussions were held over the days.
IPM varieties have been gaining increasing popularity among growers across the country with Banba, Electra and Fandango at the forefront of IPM’s portfolio of varieties for Greece.

This event is going from strength to strength and we found BP 2017 to be an incredibly beneficial exhibition. We made some new contacts and caught up with many colleagues in the industry. We showed off our new varieties and some of our promising up and coming seedlings. We look forward to doing it all again at BP 2019.

After a stormy and shaky start to Potato Europe 2017 what turned out to be a one-day event was one of the busiest we can remember. We were lucky to be exhibiting indoors where it was dry and warm and we enjoyed a fantastic day with lots of eager visitors attending our stand, the rain certainly didn’t appear to dampen anyone’s spirits. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of our friends and making new, interesting contacts. A big thank you to everyone who came to visit us, we hope you enjoyed seeing our display of established IPM varieties and our new, promising seedlings.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year at Potato Europe 2018 near Hanover in Germany! Details can be found at www.potatoeurope.com

We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who visited us at our stand and took time to look at our variety display at this wonderful event. Potatoes in Practice is the UK’s biggest potato field event which takes place at the James Hutton Institute’s Balruddery Farm near Dundee.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year!

IPM Potato Group was delighted to be part of Qualipom, a wonderful biennial exhibition held in Mericourt, France on 28th June 2017.
We were impressed with the number of visitors who came to see our stand, met our French team and enquired about our varieties. Our team were kept busy the entire day.
Many thanks to la Chambre d’Agriculture for organising this event, which has grown so much since the last exhibition.
Thank you to all who visited us and we hope to see you again at Qualipom 2019.
The president of the IPM grower committee, Emile Vogels, received a well-deserved Royal decoration on the 26th of April from the Mayor of Franekeradeel for his many years of efforts for various boards, associations and committees. He is “Ridder in de orde van Oranje Nassau”. Our Dutch Operations Manager, Erik Appeldooren was present at this festive event and presented Emile with a beautiful gift from IPM, the growers and the grower committee to mark the occasion.

We would like to thank the National Potato Council of Kenya for running an excellent open day at Nyahururu in Laikipia County, Kenya. It was our first opportunity to introduce our new varieties Tornado, Fandango, Bikini, Imagine and Infinity to Kenyan farmers.
We were overwhelmed by the welcome and supportive comments from everyone we met on the day. IPM Potato Group and our partners, Kevian Kenya Ltd are working hard towards having certified seed of our own and local Kenyan varieties available as soon as possible.
We look forward to meeting many farmers over the coming months at our open days.
