Potato Europe Emmeloord 2017 – Busy day after the storm!

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 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.

IPM Potato Group Ltd and Kevian Ltd sign MOU for Kenyan Seed

nar1

In the face of climate change and volatile global food prices, the potato is becoming an increasingly important crop for Kenya in guaranteeing food security for their growing population.

On Tuesday the 29th of November 2016, IPM and Kevian signed an MOU to establish a joint venture to develop seed potato production in Kenya. Established in 1992, Kevain food group are a leading producer of natural health drinks across East Africa, sourcing most of their ingredients locally from small scale growers in Kenya. As Kevian began expansion into the potato processing sector, it became apparent that small scale farmers were unable to source certified seed of desirable varieties to supply the emerging potato processing sector.

IPM have been introducing new varieties to Kenya since 2014 and have teamed up with Kevian to begin the production and distribution of certified seed of improved potato varieties to small scale growers.
